Carol Potter:
SOME SLOW BEES
Winner of the 2014 FIELD Poetry Prize

In her tsunami-sized drive toward "the act of knowing," Potter alternates between bullet-like declaratives, loopy wandering, and mad headlong propulsion; the reader senses anything at all might turn up and be transformed.

Ellen Doré Watson

 

Mark Neely: DIRTY BOMB

If James Wright had grown up listening to R.E.M. and watching "Twin Peaks," he might have written the gorgeously disappointed and disturbingly glorious poems in Mark Neely's Dirty Bomb. Neely renders contemporary America from the inside out.

Peter Campion

  Deep Snow Country

Bern Mulvey:
DEEP SNOW COUNTRY
Winner of the 2013 FIELD Poetry Prize

At times elegiac, at times bitterly funny, these poems are held together by Mulvey's rigorous technique, his moral vision, and a belief that art might help us assimilate loss and transform even the most dreadful experience into something valuable and lasting.

Steve Gehrke

 

Animism

Dennis Schmitz:
ANIMISM

"You can't learn levitation," Schmitz declares, but he has learned it: these poems hover gorgeously between the chthonic and the empyrean, with a rush of beating wings.
