Disquiet - Pacific Northwest Poetry Series (Hardback)John C. Witte (author)
- We can order this
Disquiet is a collection of poems that utilizes natural phenomena-a bright beach, a fallen tree limb, the weight of gravity-to evoke and reflect upon memory and human experience. The poems are structurally innovative, each shaped around a central axis as they trace the speaker's growth from childhood to adulthood. Acute observations resonate throughout the book as its focus shifts from the natural world to the world of the made-the grocery cart or pie-case or microscope-to the world of visual art, and then back. The poems are subtly braided together in a way reminiscent of the invisible bonds that unite snowflakes or cells.
