New! Morri Creech's third collection

Morri Creech’s third collection of poetry, The Sleep of Reason, is out now on Waywiser Press. Of the collection Barbara Hoffert says, “Yes, Creech tosses out challenges . . . turning over hard questions as he registers frustration with the human detritus of banks, businesses, and weapons of war, but he finally comes back to the surety and beauty of the universe.” Three of the poems included in Creech’s new book were originally published in the Sewanee Review. In our fall 2001 issue George Core said of Morri’s first collection that the poet is not “confined to the Christian myth and has written many poems including such common subjects as automotive work, broken glass, Darwin, the natural world (including starlings, the night-blooming cereus, and geese). In his best poetry he achieves what Cleanth Brooks deems the Christian synthesis, in which and through which the writer brings ‘history and nature into meaningful relation that does not absorb one into the other.’” Read a full description of the book, and pick up your copy over at Waywiser Press.
