Read an interview with Rodger LeGrand as he discusses Millions of Ravenous Creatures.



Seeds is the fifth collection of poetry from Rodger LeGrand. The poems in this collection look at different kinds of transitions—seasons, aging, mortality, the metamorphoses others expect us to make of ourselves for them, and one poem even looks at how a poem might transition and move from open to close. More than any of LeGrand’s earlier collections, this grouping of poems looks at how we find hopefulness in the uncertainty of what might come next.


Review of Thomas Lux's To the Left of Time

 In To the Left of Time, Lux sings and celebrates the details of daily lives, of memories, of observations. The book itself sings. The poems, each on their own, sing—with exuberance for being alive.
