Winner of the 2006 FIELD Poetry Prize, Red Studio is a collection of startling lyricism, vivid sensuality, and keen precision. Cornish’s poems tell about life and art and their interdependence. They are fierce, funny, and filled with a love of the world that acknowledges candidly how precarious it is--or rather, how brief our time in it must be.

About the Author:

Mary Cornish teaches at Fairhaven College of Western Washington University. Her poems have appeared in Poetry, New England Review, Alaska Quarterly Review, Poetry Northwest, and the anthology Poetry 180: A Turning Back to Poetry, selected by former Poet Laureate Billy Collins. Red Studio is her first book of poetry.

Review:

"Because Mary Cornish owns a keen, loving eye and a susceptible heart, her poems can braid together sight and feeling so as to produce a delicacy rarely found in contemporary poetry. She takes us by the hand and leads us into rooms of wonder." (Billy Collins)

"As the painters once used the broken yolks of eggs, the rocks, and the earth itself to make their colors, so Mary Cornish has made these miraculous poems: so intelligently wrought the page disappears, so gorgeous I stand and stare. At the core of each is human life, fiercely known and loved and endured. These are the poems of a radiantly alive adult woman." (Marie Howe)
