The Tiniest Muzzle Sings Songs of Freedom

Paperback

Price: $18.00

Overview

Taking readers from suburban carports to wintry Russian novels, from summer tomato gardens to the sublime interiors of presleep thoughts, Magdalena Zurawski’s poems anchor the complexities of our interconnected world in the singularity of the human experience. Balancing artistic experimentation with earnest expression, achingly real detail with dazzling prismatic abstraction, humor with frustration, light with dark, she offers a book of great human depth that is to be carried around, opened to anywhere, and encountered.

Reviews

These poems are hyper-aware of their contradictions, yet completely emotionally vulnerable. They refuse cynicism and pretense, and such a refusal explodes any possibility of intellectual distancing or emotional hiding.–Jennifer Moxley, Poetry Society of America

Because the poems are not charged with having to be about anything . . . their bareness becomes their subject. Their lines, skinny and brusque, feel precarious. . . . 'What is of value in a poem besides its meaning?' Zurawski, writing in solitude, seems to offer this answer: the transaction between the reader and the poet. The book's dedication reads 'for you.'–Darcie Dennigan, Boston Review

A book of poetry that asserts itself with the various boundaries of open forms.–Woodland Pattern
