On hand as of Oct 22 6:44am


A collection of poetry from the 2019 winner of the National Poetry Series, selected by Rosanna Warren

In her remarkable and assured debut, Alexandria Hall explores the boundaries and limits of language, place, and the self, as well as the complicated space between safety and danger, intimacy and isolation, playfulness and seriousness, home and away. With a keen eye for the importance of place, Hall shows us daily life in rural Vermont, illuminating the beauty and difficulty inherent in the dichotomies of human language and experience.

Incisive and tender, Field Music is a thoughtful and alert collection from a major emerging voice.
