Evidences  (hardbound)
James McCorkle

Evidences is the winner of the sixth annual American Poetry Review/Honickman First Book Prize, as chosen by poet Jorie Graham. In poems that are by turns lyrical, disjunctive, autobiographical, and political, the poems in Evidences sift through residues of landscape and history. The physicality of the language and the invocation of the world of places and things form a meditative process, essaying the conditions of perception and memory.

For Evidences, James McCorkle


"[James McCorkle is] a poet who, for all his commitment to the thicknesses of texture, is equally attuned to breath, to freshness, to tracings andovertracings."—Jorie Graham

"McCorkle daubs and spangles his poems... Nothing lies outside of [his] sense vocabulary... The poet’s search is for truth, ultimately... And yet,McCorkle's success is not that he undertakes the quest but that he allows readers to experience it so vividly... Evidences is a 'difficult' poetry, but not because the poems elude us; rather, it's because the poet's portrayal of our elusive world is so heartbreakingly true."—Darin Ciccotelli
