School Figures - Pitt Poetry Series (Paperback)Cathy Song (author)
- We can order this
In this, Song's third book, the poems are like the school figures an ice skater etches onto the ice - the pen moving silently and deliberately across a white expanse of paper and experience, bringing maximum pressure to bear upon the blade of language to unlock "the invisible fire beneath the ice."

"Whether describing everyday errands or probing the depths of emotion, the poems in Song's third collection are at once vivid and fluid, short-lined rhythms, lend themselves to an understated assurance, allowing the poet to startle--even to shock."
