Synopsis: Melissa Green's debut collection, The Squanicook Eclogues, was honored with prizes from the Poetry Society of America and the Academy of American Poets on its first publication by Norton in 1987. Now, in 2010, the volume is being reprinted by Pen & Anvil Press. In the four elegies of The Squanicook Eclogues, Green examines how "duty and devotion are the same when love and terror walk together." From her father, so familiar with the "iconography of trees," Green's young speaker learns how to catalogue the flora and fauna with a meticulous eye. As Joseph Brodsky noted, Green has written "wonderful eclogues ... Virgil would be proud."
About the Author: Melissa Green is the recipient of both the Norma Farber Award from the Poetry Society of America and the Lavan Award from the Academy of American Poets. She is the author of three books: The Squanicook Eclogues (Norton, 1988), Color is the Suffering of Light (Norton, 1995), and Fifty-two (Arrowsmith, 2007). She has recently finished Akeldama, a book-length lyrical work about HeloÃ¯se and AbÃ©lard. Her poems have appeared in journals including The New Republic, AGNI and the inaugural issue of Little Star. Green lives beside the sea in Winthrop, Massachusetts. Her collection Daphne in Mourning is also available from Pen & Anvil.
