Lines of Flight - poems by Catherine Chandler
(with a Foreword by Rhina P. Espaillat):
Blurbs from Richard Wilbur, Eric Ormsby and X.J. Kennedy--
Lines of Flight is the first full-length collection from Catherine Chandler, an acclaimed American poet of quiet elegance whose simple style belies the range and depth of her poems. She is equally at ease with poems of nature as with those of people, relationships, landscapes and realms—the domestic, the foreign, even those scanning the vast unknown of space or the esoterica of science. These poems, carefully crafted with formal dexterity in contemporary idiom, are deployed with precision in a showcase of forms such as the villanelle, sapphic, ballad, pantoum, triolet, nonce, and the sonnet—Chandler's specialty, for which she won the Howard Nemerov Sonnet Award.
