Winner of the 2008 Colorado Prize for Poetry
Published by the Center for Literary Publishing at Colorado State University
“Endi Bogue Hartigan's poems are enveloping: one is immersed in experiences of ice drifts, orange peels, and the striving toward a clarity (Let us be clear, one poem reiterates) that crystallizes and then evaporates. Subjects and objects are beautifully combined and confused through repetitions both musical and mysterious; each separate thing helps to form the existence of another. A reader is drawn into a process of thinking - a kind of sifting and sorting - ambitious for the large world that is always beyond one's grasp. One Sun Storm is not a mere collection, but a total project in which each poem is part of the whole. The passing by of the pieces of this created world engenders gratitude and awe."
- Martha Ronk, final judge and author of Vertigo, In a Landscape of Having to Repeat, and Why/Why Not

Endi Bogue Hartigan's work has appeared in Chicago Review, Free Verse, Quarterly West, TinFish, Gulf Coast, New Orleans Review, Insurance, LVNG, The Antioch Review, Northwest Reveiw, as well as other magazines and an anthology. She cofounded and edited Spectaculem, a magazine devoted to long poems and series, for several years. A graduate of Reed College and the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop, Hartigan has lived primarily on the West Coast and in Hawaii, and now works and lives in Portland, Oregon, with her husband and son.From Publishers Weekly:
More interested in the generative possibilities of questions than in their answers, the well-crafted, rangy free-verse lyrics of Hartigans Colorado Prize–winning debut obliquely interrogate humanitys relationships with larger forces, both natural and man-made, as well as notions of love and motherhood. Nature itself is reshaped simply by virtue of mans way of looking at it: Here the animals/ weve plucked/ from books or fields, [are] placed// into our hearts/ like lanterns. The thrilling title poem, a cascade of meticulously described actions and things, views many created objects as though they are part of nature, equating One bus arriving with blue and black windows with One goldfish darting six inches. Yet amid all this transformation, a sense of paralysis surfaces, as if seeing beyond appearances merely reveals other appearances. Fans of Jorie Graham will find much that is familiar—and much to like—in Hartigans careful lines and obsessive, off-center observations. Hartigan distinguishes herself from her peers—she shares with many young poets a hip penchant for fragmentation and elliptical imagery—with her careful eye (Wood chips/ burning/ by the pharmacy) , her ear for the ways soft and sharp sounds make music together (one leaf from among/ the accumulate of leaves), and her earnest search for One voice rising and falling in one chorus. (Nov.)
