Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Don Share's earnest, moving first volume, Union, represents the promising next stage in so-called Southern narrative poetry. Share writes clear, well-crafted page-long poems about romance, memory and separation ("our house tocks and ticks/ like an inherited clock whose hour hand sticks"). He may, however, achieve greater recognition for longer work (like "Pax Americana") in which his own stories join those of Memphis, Tennessee and of the Civil War's difficult, lingering guilt: "Where the United States ends/ and begins// The Mississippi is/ a long American wound." Fans of Rodney Jones, say, should read Share posthaste.

Format: Paperback
Readers who are familiar with Don Share's remarkable translation of Miguel Hernandez might expect Share's own poems to be rich with feeling and intelligence. They won't be disappointed. The searching, sometimes searing voice in these poems invokes a speaker who takes his material from all the layers of a profoundly felt life. The combination of personal history and mystery, along with the paradox of history as a whole create echoes that inform and haunt these poems. I read this book and felt challenged to think more deeply about the larger world around me and to hold more dear the details of the life I live.
