I have the greatest respect for each of the poets I invited to be a part of Fire in the Pasture. So when I hear they’re happy with the book, I get a little giddy. Because, hey, if the poets (brooding lot that we are) are happy, well, something must be very right with the world.
Darlene: Fire in the Pasture is “huge, and amazing, and I’m sure it will be used as a textbook for [Mormon literature] classes in the future (besides being a fantastic addition to any personal library—right?).”
Deja: Fire in the Pasture is “beautiful. I don’t mean that my poems are beautiful, I mean the book itself, as an object, is gorgeous. If you’re so inclined to see what’s going on in contemporary Mormon poetry (and how could you not be?! ;), I recommend this book.”
Huge. Amazing. Beautiful. Gorgeous. All synonymous with poetry.
