About this title


“Santos possesses an intensity akin to Rilke.”―New York Times Book Review

The Intricated Soul gathers poems from five previous books. Sherod Santos’s identity as a poet is based on his courageous resolve to take on the most difficult subjects. Whether writing about love, madness, or genocide, he engages “the most moving truths we can know about our shared humanity” (Washington Post).

“Southern Gothic”
Poor white and pining, the full moon coins
Its water-buckled image on a welling tide
That rakes the shingle back across the strand,
A bone-clatter by which fate decides the youngest
Child in a family of nine will be the first to die
(The date marked by an asterisk in the family Bible
That records such things) from illness,
Or an overdose, or a traffic accident.

About the Author:

Sherod Santos is the author of seven books of poetry. A National Book Award finalist, he received an Award in Literature from the Academy of Arts and Letters. He lives in Chicago, where he works in an outreach program for the homeless.
