Reviews

In her collection, Ghosts, Nancy Davis presents a challenging American landscape. Her poetic terrain is in turn at odds and at ease with history and wilderness. Domestic and untamed places--gardens, forests, cities--all reflect varied textures that surprise the poet and her reader. Davis shows us a landscape that is as scarred and aching as our own bodies, and as vulnerable. Birth and death are visceral and natural--shocking, but expected. Ghosts helps the reader navigate the elusive and dangerous natural world and reminds us of our proximity to both danger and safety.
