Description

"P L A C E" begins with a poem dated 5 June 2009, located at St Laurent Sur Mer, better known by its code name Omaha Beach, one of the sites of the American landings in Normandy on 6 June 1944. It is the starting point for a book of poems written in the uneasy lull of a world moving towards an unknowable future. Jorie Graham explores the ways in which imagination, intuition and experience help us to navigate a life we will have no choice but to live. How does one think ethically as well as emotionally in such a world? How does one think of one's child - of having brought a child into this world? How does love continue? As we look back, and are compelled to try to see ahead, "P L A C E" calls us, in poems of great force and beauty, to inhabit and rejoice in a more responsive and responsible place in the world.
