Overview

Poetry. Third Edition. Joyfully imaginative and emotionally rich, Heather Christle's debut collection of poetry expands the palette and intentions of contemporary surrealism. THE DIFFICULT FARM finds sincere emotion and passionately serious ideas in such surprising subjects as a so-called assassin who is, of course, a washerwoman; television interviews on hibernation; and enormous, vibrating birds. This is serious. Heather Christle's poems in THE DIFFICULT FARM are dancing with the mysteries surrounding our condition and enlivening our language in the process. Christle's poems are magical but they're too busy to tell you that. These poems run and jump and float over an ever-evolving landscape where what's at work is the serious business of discovery. In this book you will make discoveries of all kinds. These poems will shoot you to the moon, but which moon? James Tate
