Earth and Heaven: An Anthology of Myth Poetry


Jernigan and Jones celebrate the vitality and diversity of poetry inspired by, or in conversation with, myth. Looking back to the early 20th century and forward to the contemporary, Earth and Heaven gathers voices and stories as it moves through "four ages" of mythic history.

All the Daylight Hours: Poems


All the Daylight Hours, Amanda Jernigan's second poetry collection, took shape over the course of twelve years, through many changes of setting and amid a changing cast of characters encountered both face to face and in the pages of books long lived-with and loved. The poems themselves ring changes on nature and artifice, love and loss, the power of language and the limitations of language, returning to these themes in a wide variety of registers.

The three sequences of Groundwork comprise a sophisticated reworking of European myth on the order of Yeats’s The Tower. The first is situated by an archaeological dig in modern-day Tunisia, the second by the Garden of Eden, the third by the waters and islands of Homer’s Odyssey. Together they form a devastating critique of contemporary aesthetics.
