About this title

Synopsis:

The fourth collection of poems by Scott Cairns, Recovered Body, employs disarming language as it revises and gives new life to a wide range of familiar stories. Here, we overhear some of Wallace Stevens's late ruminations, we witness an erotic frolicking between poet and muse, and we receive an epistle on the subjects of love and the body from Mary Magdalen. The poet's richly cadenced style of storytelling offers theological poetry that leaves even the most cynical of readers nodding and grinning.

About the Author:

The author of three prior collections of poetry, Scott Cairns teaches in the Creative Writing Department at Old Dominion University in Virginia. His recent poetry has appeared in The Paris Review, Image, The New Republic, and The Atlantic Monthly.
