“In The Beds, award-winning poet Martha Rhodes skillfully navigates a tonally complex terrain. Rhodes fourth collection mixes form and free-verse, specifically using the rondelet's tight, obsessive repetition as a means to harness and modulate frenetic content.”—goodreads

In The Beds, award-winning poet Martha Rhodes skillfully navigates a tonally complex terrain. Rhodes’ fourth collection mixes form and free-verse, specifically using the rondelet’s tight, obsessive repetition as a means to harness and modulate frenetic content.

Reviews / Endorsements



“I can assure you that Martha Rhodes' unflinching manner of address in The Beds will make you flinch...what's so brilliant about this book is how steadfastly it refuses closure. These poems, grim and wise, never arrive in the guise of the Good Girl. And for that brand of honesty, I am most grateful.”—Cate Marvin
