Green and Burning – Poetry

Author Name: Kathleen McCoy

Book Title: Green and Burning

Book Synopsis: The poems in Green and Burning delve deeply into “The female body, the mind and mortality of man, the unnamable-but-named God . . . but she never presumes to know all the answers” (Nancy White). This book takes a feminist approach to matters of science and spirit, home and history, to consider the greenness and burning inherent in all things. Her work has been compared to that of Seamus Heaney and T.S. Eliot.
