In this groundbreaking fourth collection comprised of exquisitely crafted prose poems, Melissa Kwasny examines the world around her with the quiet and profound attention of a poet at the height of her powers. The questions that have informed much of Kwasny's previous work--how does one have a relationship with the natural world in our time? What can we learn about being human from non-human forms of life?--find a new urgency in &quot;The Nine Senses,&quot; as image collides with image to produce a singular ecological and poetic vision, one that is often dire and surreal. &quot;Perhaps the extra four senses contribute to the surreal in the sense that Breton defined it--as resolution of the real and the dream,&quot; Kwasny writes in the title poem. Thematically rich and varied, touching on mortality, temporality, and eternity, this collection puts Kwasny on the forefront of American poetry, and asks the reader: how do we tie ourselves to the world when our minds are always someplace other than where we are? <br />
