FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Mobile, AL, September 23, 2014 – Negative Capability Press announces the publication of poet Maureen Alsop's new book Later, Knives & Trees. In the 68 page volume Alsop gently "reminds us that something has passed" as she speaks with "ethereal syntax" (E.C. Belli) about death and, ultimately, grief.
Alsop says "poetry is an innate, natural touchstone, a source for understanding dimensions beyond typical structures of language. In many ways, a primal art, the basis for grief's expression." Later, Knives & Trees has been highly praised by many including the late Hillary Gravendyk who stated, "if you rotate these poems in your hand you will find they bend and scatter the light; they are prisms of language that break the sensual world into a spectrum, into lines of color."
Maureen Alsop, Ph.D. is the author of several full collections of poetry including Mantic (Augury Books) and Apparition Wren (Main Street Rag). Her poems have appeared in numerous magazines including Kenyon Review, Tampa Review, New Delta Review, Typo, and Barrow Street. Her awards include: Tony Quagliano International Poetry Prize, Harpur Palate's Milton Kessler Memorial Prize for Poetry and The Bitter Oleander's Frances Lock Memorial Poetry Award.
