Omtale Earliest Worlds
This impressive debut of a major new voice in poetry begins with Blue Guide, a poem cycle of meditations on light and dark, probing the opposing/complementary nature of these universal principles and their manifestation through words. In Of Sun, Of History, Of Seeing, the oracular power of language fuels the journey between constellations shimmering above and the mind shimmering in response below, between phenomenology and phenomena.The author of five chapbooks, Eleni Sikelianos has won a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and the Gertrude Stein Award for Innovative American Writing. Her work has appeared in Grand Street, Chicago Review, and Sulfur.
