In poems of haunting lyricism, and in a voice wholly unlike any other American poet, Christine Garren's second book of poetry explores common themes such as love, loss, and family with an uncommon sensibility. "Among the Monarchs" is filled with unforgettable metaphors, unconventional and unpredictable juxtapositions, turns and angles of perception, and seductive free verse rhythms. Through all of this, Garren captivates readers in a unique exploration of the nature of desire, the raptures and burdens of love and loss, the peculiarities of family life and, perhaps most compelling, the power of poetic imagination to shape what we see and feel. At once engaging and disquieting, "Among the Monarchs" attests to the inexhaustible possibilities of lyric poetry.
Christine Garren received her B.A. and M.F.A. from the University of North Carolina, Greensboro. Her first book of poems, "Afterworld," also in the Phoenix Poets series, was a finalist for the "Los Angeles Times" Book Prize for poetry.
