Reformation, The
Katherine Bode-Lang

Winner of the APR/Honickman First Book Prize

Selected and with an Introduction by Stephen Dunn

Katherine Bode-Lang's fierce and lyrical poems undertake the reformation of family mythology, place, and loves that each life requires to become its own. As Stephen Dunn notes in his introduction, "One of the classic tricks of actors is when you want to get the attention of your audience, you lower, not raise, your voice. Katherine Bode-Lang's work is not a trick--her lowered voice kept attracting me."

For Reformation, The, Katherine Bode-Lang

“As her book’s title suggests, The Reformation focuses on action, particularly the process of separating from or cleaving to….There is vulnerability and strength in these proclamations. There is also courage and hope—particularly in poems examining acute physical pain. In the title poem, the author cries out, “They do not know how you hold me as a teacup,/how you are so gentle as you sip the porcelain rim.” Love and persistence—this is what Bode-Lang finally comes to accept and believe." —Bookmark, WPSU
