New Poems: Diaphanous and Flowing 

Diaphanous and Flowing introduces poems penned by Elizabeth Martina Bishop. The poems translate from supernatural realms into the realms of every day existence. How should a poet act? Is poetry a practical aspect of a mystical life? Are there aesthetic boundaries between the scientific and the more poetic and intuitive realms? If so, what happens when a poet transgresses these boundaries? What are the cultural issues that emerge? Is feminism a practical art?
