In poems as tautly constructed as they are trenchantly observed, Winter, Glossolalia probes the nature of language to depict the world from which it springs. Paired with humorous, often satirical images, this collection explores human ingenuity and creativity against the material resources of the given world, highlighting the possibilities and the limits of artistic making. In that sense, it is both a timely and enduring book, one that recalls Virgil's Georgics as readily as it evokes the crisis of anthropogenic climate change.
