What People are Saying About This

James Tate

A startling first collection of poems–startling because of the bone–crushing violence and poverty, and startling also because of the beautiful and precise language the poet brings on these scenes…The genius of these poems is that they insist on seeking the human despite devastating circumstances.

This is an excellent book to whet one's appetite for poetry. Beautiful words drip from the pages while its imagery startles you into reassessing the action in the poems. It is heartrending, colorful, and very rewarding to read.

Something that disapoints me about a lot of contemporary poetry is that it seems to be spouted out very quickly. But not Carolina Ghost Woods. Jordan obviously spent a great deal of time searching her life and soul and then putting that life on paper with extraordinary wordchoices, imagery, and metaphor. I find it amazing that she is able to take such harsh subject matter and with the use of language and rhythm and metaphor put it before the reader with such beauty. This writer, her work and her words, have touched me deeply.
