Victoria Brockmeier composes a mosaic of storytelling

myths, and feminist ideas in her award-winning collection of poems, My Maiden Cowboy Names. Both linguistically playful and genuinely experimental, these poems explore the smallness of human experience. The sumptuousness and vitality of this collection does not sacrifice the capacity for excavating observation and sharp wit. Lush and spacious, these poems revel in the unexpectedly beautiful and the beautifully broken.
