Winter Recipes from the Collective
The dazzling new collection from the winner of the 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature. Louise Glück's work consistently draws on her own experience, looking for the common threads in it that render it universal. Her poems are not confessional, they are mythic. In Winter Recipes from the Collective, she starts with the dying and death of a near relation to create an indelible group of characters who act in poems that touch on the family romance, loss, art, and immortality. Her poems are so powerful because her portrayal of experience reminds us so trenchantly of what we recognize we too have seen and felt.

It is Daylight
Arda Collins is the 2008 winner of the annual Yale Series of Younger Poets competition. Mesmerizing and electric, her poems seem to be articulated in the privacy of an enclosed space. The poems are concrete and yet metaphysically challenging, both witty and despairing. Collins’ emotional complexity and uncommon range make this debut both thrillingly imaginative and ethical in its uncompromising attention to detail. In her Foreword, contest judge Louise Gl�ck observes, “I know no poet whose sense of fraud, the inflated emptiness that substitutes for feeling, is more acute.” Gl�ck calls Collins’ volume “savage, desolate, brutally ironic . . . a book of astonishing originality and intensity, unprecedented, unrepeatable.”

Radial Symmetry
Katherine Larson is the winner of the 2010 Yale Series of Younger Poets Competition. With Radial Symmetry, she has created a transcendent body of poems that flourish in the liminal spaces that separate scientific inquiry from empathic knowledge, astute observation from sublime witness. Larson's inventive lyrics lead the reader through vertiginous landscapes—geographical, phenomenological, psychological—while always remaining attendant to the speaker's own fragile, creaturely self. An experienced research scientist and field ecologist, Larson dazzles with these sensuous and sophisticated poems, grappling with the powers of poetic imagination as well as the frightful realization of the human capacity for ecological destruction. The result is a profoundly moving collection: eloquent in its lament and celebration. Metamorphosis [excerpt] We dredge the stream with soup strainers and separate dragonfly and damselfly nymphs- their eyes like inky bulbs, jaws snapping at the light as if the world was full of tiny traps, each hairpin mechanism tripped for transformation. Such a ricochet of appetites insisting life, life, life against the watery dark, the tuberous reeds. the watery dark, the tuberous reeds. the watery dark, the tuberous reeds. the watery dark, the tuberous reeds. the watery dark, the tuberous reeds.
