Marble Orchard

Emily Corwin

Size: 6 x 9


The poems in Marble Orchard are acrylic and anxious, cinematic and swarming. In this new collection, Corwin examines aches and acres, roiling with voices, overly sensitive and ripe with yearning. A “marble orchard” is a graveyard, a garden of cold flowers, a field of apples, hushed. Marble Orchard explores physical and psychic pain through ekphrastic poems (in response to film and to paintings), crowd-sourced writing from overheard conversations, and formal pieces that use the vessels of traditional poetic forms.
