9781555974251: Lightning at Dinner: Poems

"Jim Moore writes of history, of love, of pain, of the intimate revelations of a consciousness alive to itself." ―C. K. williams

It is not beautiful, this dying,
but it is what this god has for a tool.
―from "Blood Harmony"

Jim Moore's sixth collection, Lightning at Dinner―urgent and devotional―bears down on loss and how to render it in art with clarity enough to outlast our small, brief lives. These poems explore the places where the self meets the world, whether in the guise of a dying mother, another country, or a war fought against one's wishes, in one's own name.

From the Inside Flap:

Praise for author Jim Moore:

"Every story Moore tells contains an undercurrent of reverence for humanity and nature and also the reservations that arise from having lost something loved. His descriptions are humbling and profound, asking us to glimpse not only the bright center within his heart but also its dark, murky corners." ―Booklist

"Moore is a public poet in touch with what is universal and true . . . The product of his efforts needs to be in every American library." ―Choice

About the Author:

Jim Moore is the author of five collections of poetry, including The Long Experience of Love and The Freedom of History. He lives in Saint Paul, Minnesota, and spends his summers in Italy.
