Laying the Past in the Light, by Anne Maren Hogan


Laying the Past in the Light delivers wisdom and insight from a rural writer who’s breathed deeply from the land all her life, both in Iowa and North Carolina. She hones in with equal skill on both the mystery of death and the resurgent power of landscapes, those at hand and those recalled. Ms. Maren-Hogan pointedly pulls in the forces of nature (human and otherwise) to craft her lines. These poems could surely hustle me outdoors with a straw hat and a sharpened scythe. -Timothy Fay, author of Wapsipinicon Almanac
