Cassie Donish (Author)


Poetry. "This is a book of boundaries, objects, intersections. A book of multiple selves caught in the midst of self-definition. A book of conflagrations ('my hair / yesterday's / fire caught / in a disaster'). A book inhabited by all the poets who came right up to the edge over which this
book falls ('I consider any verge / a haunting'). A book by a daughter of Dickinson but of this moment. This book is not afraid to address abstractions: What is the beloved? What is a body? What is knowledge? This book barrels toward showing us what can't be told."--Mary Jo Bang
