Adversaria (Hardback)Russell (author)
- We can order this
This is the debut collection of Timothy Russell--born in Ohio, raised in West Virginia, and employed at Weirton Steel for twenty years. Adversaria celebrates the rough beauty of ordinary life and laments its inevitable decline. In depicting life in and around a small town with a steel mill, these poems combine colloquial style with a late imperial tone to capture the stark contrasts and contradictions of a life lived between the mill and the silent grace of the natural world.
