About this title


Drift Ice is a collection of poetry from a new Etruscan author, Jennifer Atkinson. The poems in Drift Ice view the natural world through a lens of ecological and spiritual concerns. They focus especially on Prince William Sound in Alaska fifteen years after the Exxon-Valdez oil spill, Long Island Sound at the estuarial mouth of the Connecticut River, and Sri Lanka before (and, in one poem, after) the tsunami. The poems address the myth of a once pristine wilderness and the indifferent, ever-changing nature of “nature” and our human place in it, as they also investigate the flexibility and lambency of lyric form.

Jennifer Atkinson is the author of two collections of poetry—The Dogwood Tree, which won the University of Alabama Poetry Prize, and The Drowned City, winner of the Samuel French Morse Prize. Her poetry and nonfiction can be seen in many leading journals and have been honored with Pushcart Prizes. She taught in Nepal and Japan and at the University of Iowa and Washington University before joining the faculty of George Mason University.

About the Author:

Jennifer Atkinson received her B.A. from Wesleyan University and her M.F.A. from the University of Iowa. She is the author of two previous books of poems, The Dogwood Tree (University of Alabama, 1990) and The Drowned City (Northeastern University Press, 2000), which won the Samuel French Morse prize. She teaches at George Mason University in Virginia.
