In her third collection of poems, Teresa Cader spins a complete universe of lyrical, probing verse that reaches out to readers and invites them to come inside. These poems deal with love and loss in particularly striking ways, as Cader uses rigorously controlled verse to express chaotic emotion. Stylistically adventurous, her work moves gracefully from intricate, slant-rhymed couplets to elliptical, lanky free verse. Geographically, she takes readers on a ride with stops in Krakow's rock clubs, colonial New England's sites, and shrines of contemporary Japan. The shadow of death, especially the loss of Cader's mother, falls across many of her poems, but her verse reacts viscerally to such events, her emotion resounding out from each line to move through pain or desire.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Teresa Cader has written exquisitely before, but never has the wing-rustle of death touched her poems so closely. Historical sympathy makes its peace with personal grief on these pages; craft makes its fine argument against annihilation. 'The New Creation' alone would make this book a triumph but, triumphantly, is not alone."

--Linda Gregerson


"These poems are wonderfully rich in outer observations that conjure inner ones, that peculiar imaginative power that Hopkins called 'inscape.' And like Hopkins, Cader possesses a melancholy and brave and deeply devotional temperament that she embodies in a bold, subtle music."

--Tom Sleigh
"'Whoa, I said to my ordinary, ' declares the speaker in Teresa Cader's 'Petrified Light'--and that whoa exemplifies her whole arresting and vivid book, History of Hurricanes. Personal and collective hitsory flow into each other in these poems which flood the commonplace in the light of revelation. Cader's phrasing is sensuous and transformative, her pacing abrupt, her intelligence knife-sharp, and her heart deeply schooled."

--Rosanna Warren
