A Cartography of Peace
Poetry. "Only some art knows how to teach us how to live, and in a way that we are willing, ardently willing, to be taught. Jean Connor's A CARTOGRAPHY OF PEACE is that kind of book. By turns 'wildly admiring' or 'sitting beneath the tutelage of the dark,' these poems take hold of me and sit me down in an attention to both language and the natural world that is riveting and wrought, silence-filled and sublime. 'Time to read/ something old/ deeper than August,' says the speaker in one poem. Yes. Indeed. Right here. This whole book"--Robin Behn.
