School Figures


Author: Cathy Song | Paperback

In choosing Cathy Song's first book for the Yale Series of Younger Poets, Richard Hugo said that her poems are "bouquets to those moments in life that seemed minor but in retrospect count the most."

In this, Song's third book, the poems are like the school figures an ice skater etches onto the ice - the pen moving silently and deliberately across a white expanse of paper and experience, bringing maximum pressure to bear upon the blade of language to unlock "the invisible fire beneath the ice."
