In Stedfast (Goose Lane Editions $19.95), Ali Blythe reinterprets John Keats’s work, introducing themes of marginality into the Romantic vision. Set over a single night with the poet beside a sleeping lover, Blythe’s poems explore illusion versus reality, immersion and escapism, and the enduring in contrast with the transient. Written in tight, short lines, these poems are infused with eros, examining the nature of love, as they address and undress their subjects with poetic precision. 9781773103051
