9780061537189: Sea Change: Poems

The New York Times has said that "Jorie Graham's poetry is among the most sensuously embodied and imaginative writing we have," and this new collection is a reminder of how startling, original, and deeply relevant her poetry is. In Sea Change, Graham brings us to the once-unimaginable threshold at which civilization as we know it becomes unsustainable. How might the human spirit persist, caught between its abiding love of beauty, its acknowledgment of continuing injury and damage done, and the realization that the existence of a "future" itself may no longer be assured?

There is no better writer to confront such crucial matters than Jorie Graham. In addition to her recognized achievements as a poet of philosophical, aesthetic, and moral concerns, Graham has also been acknowledged as "our most formidable nature poet" (Publishers Weekly). As gorgeous and formally inventive as anything she has written, Sea Change is an essential work speaking out for our planet and the world we have known.

About the Author:

Jorie Graham is the author of twelve collections of poems. Her poetry, widely translated, has been the recipient of numerous awards, among them the Pulitzer Prize, the Forward Prize (UK), and the International Nonino Prize. She lives in Massachusetts and teaches at Harvard University

Review:

“Jorie Graham’s status as a canonic poet – of the academic breed, with a flair for blending the intellectual and the sensual – is virtually guaranteed.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

“Sea Change is among Graham’s most powerful books.” (Time Out New York)

“Here, the interconnectedness of all life isn’t just a spiritual commonplace, it is grounds for a call to action, and one that Graham – a poet of rare responsiveness to the natural world and a thinker of great ethical responsibility – is uniquely qualified to make.” (Publishers Weekly (starred review))

“Stunning... Forthright, compassionate and ironic, Graham has crafted poems of lyrical steeliness and cauterizing beauty... Graham writes with breathtaking precision.” (Booklist (starred review))

“[Never] shows Graham to be a most formidable nature poet.” (Publishers Weekly)

“Graham is one of the most important living poets, and her control of her craft is undisputed.” (Library Journal)

“[Never] declares that the artistic task of becoming, once begun, continues on.” (New York Times Book Review)

“Graham confronts modern wickedness torture and global warming are two themes in lush, sometimes hymnlike verse, A-.” (Entertainment Weekly)

“Jorie Graham’s intricate, sophisticated, and mercurial poems have long been one of the splendors of contemporary American literature. In her latest book, she turns her attention to death, and the result is perhaps her finest collection yet.” (Village Voice)
