Poems (Pitt Poetry Series)
Praise For Ringer: Poems (Pitt Poetry Series)…
“What a great title! It's perfectly true—the whole book rings with surprising images and zingy word-choices, all dedicated to presenting the most mundane things in their truly astonishing particularity. Sharply attuned to issues relating to women—and the ways they've intensified in the current political climate—the work speaks with a fierce and necessary determination infused with an energy not devoid of hope.”--Cole Swensen
Lehmann’s latest book offers readers a sagacious and kinetic whirlwind of unrest and gratitude for the world.
"[Lehmann's] subjects may be selfhood, womanhood, motherhood, and family, but her tools for understanding them are an accumulated, tactile sense of life lived and the things around us. . . . Indeed, the lists abounding here pile up to create rich poetry that’s exact, sculpted, and delivered in a calm, engaged voice." —Library Journal, Starred Review
