Read full description of the books:
Ed Madden is one of the best modern poets I've ever read. In Signals he struggles with what it means to be Southern. He writes about the setting- South Carolina, Arkansas. He writes about race. He writes about love and history and hidden things.
I listened to him read from Signals at the 2008 Southern Festival of Books. Ever since, I've given long and serious thought to where I would like to die. And that, my friends, is good poetry.
I finished Signals laying on a blanket in a newly mowed hayfield on my mother's farm, with my husband asleep next to me. The sky was blue and a Hawk circled us, curious. After every poem I had to lay down the book, look around, take in my surroundings and think about the images- the ones in the poem and the ones surrounding me. It is an impressionist's book about moments and places and the people who inhabit moments.
I can't recommend it highly enough.
