The Usable Field by Jane Mead


David St. John recommends
The Usable Field, by Jane Mead: "There is a far greater spareness to these new poems of Jane Mead's, yet they are as philosophically complex and stylistically compelling as those in her two previous collections. Yet this more honed style has only amplified the ferocity of her attention to the natural world and her compassion for human otherness. For its syntactic refinement alone, I find this book breathtaking." (Alice James)
