Additional Information

The winning volume in the 1987 Yale Series of Younger Poets competition is To the Place of Trumpets. As James Merrill, distinguished poet and judge of the competition, has said: "Brigit Pegeen Kelly's poems suggest a kind of folk art-their clay washed of narrative grit, serviceably turned and fancifully decorated, fired, then filled at the creative instinct's oldest well. It is a pleasure to drink form this fine local pottery."

The awarding winning first book of poetry by Brigit Pegeen Kelly. She has authored three volumes, all superb. A born Celt poet, these three books make up a classic, long line mytho-poetic journey, rendering the everyday mystic, and the mystical imbued in the quotidian. No poet can read just one! I'll play the prophet and say that the trio will become a quartet with a masterpiece fourth volume. A rare girl, is Herself!
This collection of poems marks the beginning of a fruitful and freeing new period in American poetry-- one in which overt lyricism, formal experimentation alongside musical phrasing, and imaginative myth-making coincide with an eerie beauty that is far from expected or platitudinous. Pegeen Kelly's style was unlike anything I'd ever seen when I first read her 2nd book "Song" in the mid 90s--a time of plainspoken realistic free verse and monotonous new formalism-- but she had already expressed it fully in this tremendously original first book (selected by James Merrill for the Yale Younger Poets Prize and compellingly introduced by him). Please bring this back into print!
