Poetry. Patti White was a probation officer in Colorado before turning to academic life. She now teaches American literature at Ball State University and is the author of Gatsby's Party: the System and the List in Contemporary Literature. "These poems offer a unique perception of the world, almost primal in their energy and power, but also couched in the sophistication of global myth and literature. Patti White's voice is authoritative, witty, and persuasive. She can take the most trivial subject and give it substance through her imaginative vision. Like a shaman, she offers reverence for life and the living, but this is no soft-focus new age shaman afraid to touch blood or penetrate mysteries. To read these poems is to be invigorated, to feel the possibility of moving outside the confines of one's own narrow personal life"--Diane Wakoski.
