AUTHOR

Alexander, Pamela

SUMMARY

A combination of poetry, nature writing, and biography in one book-length "persona-poem."Combining the best of poetry, nature writing, and biography, Pamela Alexander in her book-length "persona-poem" brings to life John James Audubon and a world not yet aware of nature's limits. She distills the essence of this remarkable naturalist-artist and gives him voice to tell his life's story in fragments of letters, journal entries, actual vignettes and lyrical passages, Captivating and accessible, her poem reads with the authority of autobiography, the dramatic coherence of a novel, and the evocative clarity of an Audubon print. The reader, briefly transported to the natural world of America a century and a half ago, cannot help but contrast its condition today and feel a poignant sense of loss.Alexander, Pamela is the author of 'Commonwealth of Wings An Ornithological Biography Based on the Life of John James Audubon' with ISBN 9780819521910 and ISBN 0819521914.
