At the core of Libby Burton's highly anticipated debut poetry collection, Soft Volcano, are the vivid details underpinning the relationships we hold dearly in our lives.
A feminist force, highly wrought and impressionistic, surges from these intensely lyric distillations that show us what we look like standing in the hallways of the museum of lost love-where we stand, how our hair looks, what marks of woe and time are left upon the body after love is strained or abandoned.
Soft Volcano is a book of vivid and crushing lyric poems, each one a swell of danger, beauty, and truth.
