Stone Sky Lifting

Overview

Stone Sky Lifting is a study in states of extremity, portraying violence at one end of the spectrum and unbidden solace at the other. Focusing on transforming events, Purpura depicts the spiritual dislocation that can result from abiding scrutiny.

With a metaphysical sensibility, Purpura moves between our world's abundance and its mysterious stillness in her subject matter. Over the course of the book, a shaken vision emerges -- one of trespass, both worldly and spiritual, and ...

Overview

Stone Sky Lifting is a study in states of extremity, portraying violence at one end of the spectrum and unbidden solace at the other. Focusing on transforming events, Purpura depicts the spiritual dislocation that can result from abiding scrutiny.

With a metaphysical sensibility, Purpura moves between our world's abundance and its mysterious stillness in her subject matter. Over the course of the book, a shaken vision emerges -- one of trespass, both worldly and spiritual, and of repair. The poems in this collection don't seek resolve; rather, they make space for paradox to root. Silences become revelations in Purpura's poems.
