Startling in their mystery, these poems are entirely original; abstract. Details (if other): Cancel. Thanks for telling us about the problem. Startling in their mystery, these poems are entirely original; abstract and passionate, sensual and otherworldly, trance-like and exciting.

Kathleen Peirce (born 1956, Moline, Illinois, United States) is an American poet. She graduated from the Iowa Writer's Workshop in 1988. She currently teaches at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas, for the Texas State University MFA. She has one son. 1990 Association of Writers & Writing Programs Award for Mercy. 1998 Iowa Poetry Prize for The Oval Hour. 2000 William Carlos Williams Award for The Oval Hour. 2005 National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship.

The Ardors is a book that takes us beyond ourselves, beyond our workady bodies and souls. Line upon line, gorgeous. Masterfully employing an extended metaphor of pearls, Peirce honors the intensity, mystery, and beauty of earth, and of experience. The arguments in the more formal of these poems are nearly Miltonic-I refer now to the darkness of a world quarreling with its darkness, that cold, cold envoy. She observes worlds mindfully, so that her poems move between large and small, under and over, internal and external. This movement complements her brilliant and measured phrasing.

Mattie Shetler is an expert baker, so when her aunt Carolyn begs for help during the busy Christmas rush, Mattie eagerly packs her bags and heads to Birch Creek. What she doesn't know is that her uncle has also asked for help with the bakery's new expansion, and he's asked none other than Peter Kaufman, Mattie's sworn enemy.

Startling in their mystery, these poems are entirely original; abstract and passionate, sensual and otherworldly, trance-like and exciting. The Ardors is a book that takes us beyond ourselves, beyond our workaday bodies and souls.

Kathleen Peirce didn't always have the power to see and say everything

Kathleen Peirce didn't always have the power to see and say everything. As a little girl, she even had some trouble learning to read time. One day, her mother brought home a wooden clock that housed a pink ballerina in a pretty glass case. For Peirce, whose book of poems The Oval Hour earned her a 1998 Iowa Poetry Prize, this angled approach to the world and its emotions gives her a voice that makes the reader believe that perhaps she can see and say everything worthwhile.

“Startling in their mystery, these poems are entirely original; abstract and passionate, sensual and otherworldly, trance-like and exciting . . . . The Ardors is a book that takes us beyond ourselves, beyond our workaday bodies and souls.”—Jean Valentine.

Line upon line, gorgeous. Masterfully employing an extended metaphor of pearls, Peirce honors the intensity, mystery, and beauty of earth, and of experience. She observes worlds mindfully, so that her poems move between large and small, under and over, internal and external. This movement complements her brilliant and measured phrasing. The poems accumulate, like pearls, to form an exquisite book of American poetry.
