Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "This book is crushing and brilliantly written. If ever there were a time for McLatchey's deeply moving and compassionate poems, it is now with the crazed, unchecked violence against our children. There are no elegies here, only a powerful intellect at work and a truly gifted poet's heartbreaking songs to our lost children." -Jeffrey Greene, author of Beautiful Monsters.

Riassunto: Winner of 2013 May Swenson Poetry Award
In The Lame God, author M. B. McLatchey reminds us of the inevitable bond between art and empathy. With a controlled language that finds its echo chamber in the immortal themes and characters of classical literature, this courageous work accompanies the author on her journey through a parent?s anguish in the face of a horrific crime. Using the art of poetry she gives voice to a suffering?and a love?that might otherwise go unheard. The May Swenson Poetry Award, an annual competition named for May Swenson, honors her as one of America's most provocative and vital writers. During her long career, Swenson was loved and praised by writers from virtually every school of American poetry. She left a legacy of fifty years of writing when she died in 1989. She is buried in Logan, Utah, her hometown.
