Pure is a fierce, passionate series of meditations on experience and consciousness, morals and customs, and on the natural world that surrounds and shapes human life. Frost's poems bear the stamp of a thoroughly original artistic vision and style - they are discursive yet filled with concrete images; they inquire into moral issues - pleasure, guilt, jealousy - without moralizing; they catch the echoes of western myths in domestic and quotidian events; they sharply diagnose relations between the sexes. Reviewers have said of Frost's earlier work: ""The poems are demanding, the syntax rich and the rhythms strange and captivating. Much is made of the mythic, archetypal and personal landscapes, where the beautiful and the terrible come together"". Frost's poems are formal in tone and surprising in content. To achieve the intensity of the sonnet without the predictability of the sonnet form, Frost has invented an eleven-line poem that is sharply etched, deeply felt, carefully made - pure. Carol Frost has published five books of poems since ""The Salt Lesson"" (1976), including ""Chimera"" , which was a runner-up for the Poets' Prize in 1990. Her work has appeared in ""The Atlantic"", ""American Poetry Review"", ""Antaeus"", ""Partisan Review"" and other magazines. She is Writer-in-Residence at Hartwick College. She has also taught in the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College, the Bread Loaf Writer's Conference, the Vermont Studio Center and elsewhere.
