Barn Burned, Then by Michelle Taransky

Marjorie Welish, the esteemed poet who selected Michelle Taransky's manuscript for the Omnidawn prize, explains that these poems “animate the economies and concerns of our lives. Barn Burned, Then implicates Objectivism in this imagining, to create poems of the conglomerate of bank and barn—words shown to be made of contingent cultural forces.” In terse, tautly crafted poems that are dynamically contemporary, Taranksy assesses our cultural moment with unrelenting courage and candor.
