Overview

Light Thickens by Elizabeth Biller Chapman


Poetry. Recipient of the Robert McGovern Memorial Publication Prize for 2008, Chapman's second book of poems, LIGHT THICKENS, is a mournful, hopeful collection with imagery as thick and sweet as molasses. Her poetry exhibits wisdom, humility, and awe, whether in the act of removing her shoes in "Wainscott, Like as the Waves," where "the common stones jewel their swath whose light only the ocean's constant washing gives; moving water, water moving. Let me remember who I am...", or gathering her mother's treasures--"Everything I chose was chipped." These poems are well-worn, loved-upon pieces of art.
