Chemical Wedding

by Robyn Ewing

Published by the Center for Literary Publishing at Colorado State University

Winner of the 2002 Colorado Prize for Poetry

"These poems are unconventional, deep, independent, un-American, all-American, hip, tragic, observant, skitterish, critical, political, crushed, brushed, funny. It is the range of motion and emotion in them that makes them matter."
—Fanny Howe, author of Forged, Q, One Crossed Out, O'Clock, and Nod

"Chemical Wedding is a startling debut collection. Wild and wonderfully unpredictable in its motions of mind, in its curiosities, and in the wide-ranging array of its experiences, it is differently wild in its voicing and formal strategies. It is rare to find a first book so mature and yet so sturdily and willfully original."
—Jorie Graham, author of Never, Swarm, and The Dream of the Unified Field
