Nature Studies

Available Now, Poetry Chapbooks, Terry Ann Wright

Debut chapbook, Nature Studies by Terry Ann Wright. 45 pages, perfect bound, 6×6 inches. Illustrated with Victorian style scientific drawings to compliment her biting poems. Available through Sadie Girl Press Bookstore and MADE by Millworks in Long Beach.

“Each poem in these “Nature Studies” is a precise scalpel of human relationships. We could say that this book is an anatomy/botany/cartography of attraction and rejection, of desire and oblivion. The poems are complex, vocative (many of them built in the “you” voice), rich in sound, piercing. The author exercises a sort of contemporary, Victorian contention to fully explore passion, disorder. It is in this movement between exposure and form where the pages of this book breathe, come to life. The reader hears echoes of William Blake (“The Sick Rose”) and Emily Dickinson (“Started Early-Took My Dog”) but most of all, we hear the distinctive voice of Terry Ann Wright–daring, unapologetic.” ~Mariano Zaro, author of Tres letras/Three Letters
