Homer sends the hero of THE ODYSSEY to interview the dead in order to discover his destiny. The poems of R. T.

Swift Hour: Poems
By author: Megan Sexton
Product Code: P478
ISBN: 9780881464696
Product Format: Paperback
Availability: In stock
Price: $16.00
Swift Hour opens with an epigraph from a Leonard Cohen song, “I hope you’re keeping some kind of record.” Like Cohen, Sexton is looking for the crack in everything that lets the light in, but even more urgent is the recording of these moments. Life is quickly passing, but along the way, relics are harvested for safekeeping. Her work reminds us how in some ways myth and knowledge itself help us to navigate through the shadows toward the light.

The Color of All Things: 99 Love Poems
By author: Philip Lee Williams
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P503
ISBN: 9780881465235
Availability: In stock
Price: $18.00

Moving and filled with unexpected ideas and imagery, The Color of All Things is a love letter from one man to one woman, but it offers love from each of us to all of us. Brimming with a touching and generous joy, this is a book of everyday needs that can only be filled with a genuine and lasting love. This is the third volume of poetry from Philip Lee Williams, following on his Elegies for the Water and his national book of the year (Books and Culture magazine) The Flower Seeker: An Epic Poem of William Bartram. Like his other volumes of poetry, The Color of All Things moves slowly through the natural world without sentimentality but with surefooted grace and lovely rhythms. Georgia poet laureate Judson Mitcham says that in Williams’s poetry we hear “the distinctive voice of a poet who knows how to tell the stories that matter, how to hold still and take a good look at the natural world and let himself be filled with praise, a poet who knows how to find the right prayer and how to pray it.”


The Disappearing Act
By author: Sara Pirkle Hughes
Publisher: Mercer University Press
Product Code: P561
ISBN: 9780881466522
Availability: In stock
Price: $16.00
In her first collection of poems, Sara Pirkle Hughes explores the role memory plays in shaping identity and a person’s perception of the past. The book’s title, THE DISAPPEARING ACT, posits that time is a magician causing every moment in a person's life to disappear, and every poem in the collection is the poet's attempt to recapture what has vanished, while also acknowledging the inherent paradox of writing about the past. The fallible nature of memory makes it impossible to preserve an experience free of distortion.
