In Blue Lash, James Armstrong explores the way a physical place can be alchemically transformed into mental geographies. The world of Lake Superior comes alive and expands outward in these poems: cicadas grind their teeth/under the blue roof of August; a quartz pebble becomes little knuckle/petrified egg/white as a wave-cap; a Jet Ski revs past the dock/like a demon out of Milton. Stripping away the layer of sentimentality that often cloaks the lake, Armstrong portrays it instead as a rebuke to human arrogance, and a reminder of the sublime indifference of wild places.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: James ArmstrongPublisher: Milkweed EditionsPublished: 03/13/2006ISBN: 9781571314246Pages: 88Weight: 0.30lbsSize: 8.88h x 6.64w x 0.21dReview Citations: Library Journal 08/15/2006 pg. 90Library Journal 08/01/2006 pg. 90
