Poetry. A Forward Magazine's Book of the Year finalist, CALENDARS' lyrics echo in the reader's ear long after the book is closed. "Annie Finch is an American original, a master of control who shows no fear of excess, and none of quietness either"--Ron Silliman. Finch's unique voice pulses through CALENDARS, singing the cycles of time that unite our lives with nature and each other. As they mark the turns in the wheel of the year, these innovative and radically traditional poems conjure a new Self, freed into a reality without centers.
