Catherine Tufariello has taught literature and writing courses at Cornell, The College of Charleston, and the University of Miami. Her poems and translations have appeared in numerous journals, including Poetry and The Hudson Review.From Booklist:
*Starred Review* Children play furiously in the "asphalt pen" of the schoolyard, and after the bell calls them in, a handyman ascends to the gym roof, "gathers up the balls that got away . . and punts them, in bright arcs, back into play." Sixty years ago in Germany, two student Resistance leaders sail leaflets into a university building's stairwell; porter Schmid catches "the dark-haired young man's shoulder in a rough / Policeman's grip . . and the girl stayed by his side." A very little girl, alone for a minute in a big room during a wedding party, dances. Tufariello conjures such common-enough scenes so vividly that one's mind and heart are fully engaged, and not by means of the virtual prose most new poets still essay, but in meter and rhyme so skillfully employed that they swing a poem's sense as well as its impetus. This is genuinely, though not deliberately, musical verse. From the more public scenes of the poems in the first part of her first collection, Tufariello turns to interfamilial and marital themes in the second, to bittersweet love in translations of early Renaissance Italian poems in the third, to biblical stories of childbearing and women's friendship in the fourth, and in the last, to the story of her later-than-usual pregnancy and the triumphant birth of her daughter.
