9781941058114: Keeping Me Still

Keeping Me Still is a collection of poems like keepsakes of what is lost and gained as we move on, grow, and reach for something bigger-always with hope. Renee Emerson's debut collection of free-verse poetry delves into the spaces between people and the land, moving through the lush landscapes of Tennessee, Kentucky, and Georgia while exploring the complex relationships between mother and daughter, sisters, and husband and wife.

From the Back Cover:

"In her poems ornamented with quotidian glimpses of fallen Southern beauty--morning glory vines, signs in front of roadside churches, chiggers in the grass--Renee Emerson sees the South anew.  These are stories of love and grace, laced with the leavening mystery of lyric and unflinching in their reaching after the knife-like truths of our living." - Bobby C. Rogers, author of Paper Anniversary Winner of the 2009 Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize
"With a watchful, urgent eye, Renee Emerson has taken in the world as daughter, sister, wife, mother.  Here the daily becomes mythic--pregnancies and church services, sibling rivalries and the utterances of other women who judge.  Because her landscape is the South, the Bible, with all its portents, layers the poems in this quietly stunning debut.  In Emerson's hands, faith is given the freedom to be complex and difficult, to be human in its failings and its consolations. Apprehension and restlessness trail the speaker in this collection, and with honest, unflinching reflection, she offers her readers neither solutions nor salvation but instead mesmerizing stories set to a music that might help us endure these everyday burdens." -Todd Davis, author of In the Kingdom of the Ditch and The Least of These

"Reading Keeping Me Still  resembles the pleasure of watching a gifted athlete. Emerson is a swift, muscular noticer: The coyote's voice resembling a baby's; Satan with his pitchfork on a country church marquee; A snakes' coil like a diacritical mark; The moon 'a mimosa-colored omen . . . God's thumbnail.' And the noticing is fierce, ardent rather than ornamental. The book's central perception guides these images to a central focus: 'there is something in love/ that calls for blood.'" -Robert Pinsky, author of  Singing School
