Poetry. Alice George's poems meet the threats of everyday life with a lifted chin, a jaundiced eye and a sense of humor. Exploring materials from folklore and fairy tale, politics and science within the matrix of her clear lyric, she invites us into an imaginative world of unusual range and immediacy. Maureen Seaton comments: "Through everything wonderful--the political, familial, and fantastic--she gives us her steady, settling voice. What a holiday! I adore this book!" A seven-time recipient of Ragdale Foundation Fellowships, Alice George was awarded an Illinois Arts Council Fellowship for Poetry in 2005. She lives in Evanston, Illinois, with her husband Shawn Decker, a sound and media artist.
