Strange Nursery
Esther Schor

Sheep Meadow
2012 • 128 pp. 9 x 6 1/2"

$15.95 Paperback, 978-1-937679-04-0

Breathtaking, rigorous new poems that wrestle with history, myth, devils, angels and self

The worldly poetry in Strange Nursery confirms the holiness of all living things. This is poetry about savage nativity scenes, the martyrization of rats, hope, passions. Included is a poem that stands, according to Harold Bloom, “as one of a handful of major American longer poems, of middle length, of the last half-century.”

ESTHER SCHOR, educated at Yale, is a poet and Professor of English at Princeton. She won the 2006 National Jewish Book Award.
