Sky Atlas by Alan R Wilson

Book Description

Atlantic Poetry Prize Nominee, 2009ReLit Award Nominee, 2009There is something in the contours of the sonnet, that siren of poetic forms, which can shape the imagination. "Sky Atlas," based on the 88 constellations, is itself a sequence of 88 sonnets: some are traditional and others, like the prose sonnet and the hypersonnet, are more subversive, yet still maintain a strong attachment to a poetic terrain. The heavens are seasonal, and so is the atlas, with 22 constellations in each of the spring, summer, fall, and winter sections. A walk under the stars, whatever the season, can leave you breathless and wondering. Reading "Sky Atlas" will do the same.
