Riassunto: A Book of Minutes is Cathy Smith Bowers' third book of poetry. The poems are in a poetic form named a "minute" which is a poem consisting of sixty syllables with a syllabic line count of 8,4,4,4— 8,4,4,4— 8,4,4,4. The form also consists of rhyming couplets. Bowers plays on this form with subtle variations. The structure of A Book of Minutes is a physical but secular metaphor of the Book of Hours, the medieval prayer book that was its age’s own version of today’s literary best-seller. The Book of Hours was arranged in accordance with the eight canonical hours of the day, beginning with Matins, moving all the way through to Vespers, and ending with Compline.
L'autore: Cathy Smith Bowers is a native of South Carolina. She was a winner of the 1990 General Electric Award for Younger Writers and a South Carolina Poetry Fellowship. Her poems have appeared widely in publications such as The Altantic Monthly, The Georgia Review, Poetry, Shenandoah, The Southern Poetry Review, The Southern Review, Kenyon Review, and many others. Cathy’s first book, The Love That Ended Yesterday in Texas, was published in 1992 as the first winner of the Texas Tech University Press First-book Competition in their Poetry Award Series, subsequently named for Walt McDonald. Iris Press republished The Love That Ended Yesterday in Texas in 1997. Iris Press published Cathy’s second book, Traveling in Time of Danger, in 1999. Cathy teaches in the MFA program in Creative Writing at Queens University of Charlotte.
