9780932440945: The Lightning Field

In her third collection, Carol Moldaw explores new territory in poems that are thematically far-reaching and technically superb. The book includes three long sequences based on art and artifact in various stages of completeness: preliminary pen-and-ink studies, Turkish ruins, and, at the center, the site-specific art installation that gives the book its title and impetus. Attracting charged material as a lightning field attracts lightning, the poems reference narrative but move beneath and beyond it through a restless and rewarding insistence on making and remaking, on seeing by degrees and seeing whole.

About the Author:

The author of a novel and five books of poetry, CAROL MOLDAW has followed a rigorous writer’s path, recording with indelible passion the inscrutable, the sensual and intellectual. The recipient of a Lannan Foundation Marfa Writer’s Residency, an NEA Creative Writing Fellowship and a Pushcart Prize, Moldaw has taught for many writing conferences and university programs, including Stonecoast, the University of Southern Maine’s low residency M.F.A. program, and the M.F.A. program at Naropa University. She lives in Pojoaque, New Mexico with her husband and daughter.

Review:

"In Carol Moldaw's precise, objective poems, a Parnassian art is reborn. These poems keep a remarkable balance between inner and outer worlds, between dream-life and stern logic. They are works of art."
