Tess Gallagher’s new poems are suspended between contradiction and beauty
"Alice Derry's Hunger is a beautifully observed, broad-reaching, and ultimately political collection of poems--political in the best and necessary sense: she is a woman, and a citizen of the world, and searches out the complexities and indeterminacies of what that might mean.
Tremolo can be contained in the line from Theodore Roethke’s villanelle, “The Waking”: “This shaking keeps me steady. I should know.” In music, tremolo describes notes which are repeated in time, as opposed to trill, notes which stand outside the composition’s basic beat.$14.00ISBN: 9781555971755Availability: Special OrderPublished: Graywolf Press - September 1st, 1992

Poetry, like all art, feels more and more essential as the weeks of change stretch on. We're pleased to present Poetry From The Peninsula as a balm in these unusual times. With support from the Foothills Writers Series at Peninsula College, we reached out to a number of local poets, asking them to read works that have meaning for them in these challenging times. Our hope is that you can find meaning, familiarity, and maybe even humor in these poems. New readings will be posted here as they come available. Enjoy!
Welcome to our weekly(ish) reading of short picture books, board books, and occasional guest readers. Is there a story you'd like to see read aloud? We'd love your feedback! These videos are first available on Facebook.
