DESCRIPTION

Poetry. “Permeated with the consciousness and language of fairy tales, the poems in THE COURTSHIP AND OTHER TALES offer a powerful and unsettling perspective on our lives, where ‘it is so difficult / to distinguish passion from despair.’ ‘Shall I greet myself?’ asks the speaker of one poem, waiting for her chance. The language informing these poems is original, intricate, and precise; the imagination deeply moving; the poetic grace a pleasure. In carrying her ‘stories like crumbs / to drop, to find a way / back,’ Ugoretz has given us a beguiling and memorable collection.”—Carol Moldaw

“This book is smart, uninhibited, and brave. Kathryn Ugoretz volleys deftly between satisfaction and surprise. We will recognize the world of these poems, but the normal won’t stand still, and the result is unpredictable and delightful.”—Gary Short
