On Our Shelves Now
Poetry. Translation. Hobblebush Books is delighted to announce Volume Five of its Hobblebush Granite State Poetry Series, THE BRIAR PATCH, a collection of poems and literary translations by J. Kates. Along with the witty playfulness of the poems in this volume, there is an urgent exploration of contemporary human relationships. With erudition and compassion, Kates carries on his own version of Frost's "lover's quarrel with the world."
"The turns of phrase, the rhymes, the often formal constructs and the sly wit...subtle undercurrents in work that is ambitious and daring in its emotional range and variety of subjects." Marie Harris.
