Overview

Poetry. This is flawless poetry from a fearless poet with perfect pitch, whether she is writing whimsy or elegy. Melanie Almeder's poems span myriad locales and themes without ever losing sight of the author's goal: to enlighten, arouse, irk, and amuse. Contemporary philosophy, autobiography, and the landscapes of Florida and Maine are all rendered between these pages, but there is an underlying unity and wisdom to her vision that will manipulate, surprise, and edify her readers as they are led into her lyrically rich yet subtly nuanced landscapes. A singular debut from a compellingly inventive new voice that cannot, and will not, be ignored.
