Doubter Come Home from a Drowning of Vision
MetadataShow full item record
A poetry collection in two parts. Slingshot Catapult, the first half of the manuscript, explores the lives of two professional wrestlers. While the spectacle of professional wrestling is the backdrop for this series of linked, narrative poems, the relationship between protagonists Tracy and Dodge and who they are as individuals, rather than the caricatures wrestlers often play, are the core concerns of this opening section. Knotcraft, the second half of the collection, offers a mix of lyric, narrative, and formal poetry. As in Slingshot Catapult, common threads running through and between these poems include family history, romantic relationships, religion, and vision. Readers are invited to draw parallels between themes explored in Knotcraft and Slingshot Catapult.
