Rooms and Their Airs

Poems


BY Jody Gladding

Questions of use and usefulness find varied expression through the personas of Gladding’s much anticipated second full volume of poetry. Drawn from her environments of northern Vermont and southern France, the work in Gladding’s Rooms and Their Airs explores the interface of the “human” and the “natural” worlds, and with each poem, further erodes that distinction. These crystalline lyrics sparkle with humor, sophisticated word play, and intellectual examination, reflecting an elegant and contagious curiosity about the world, history, and language. A literary heir to A. R. Ammons, Gustaf Sobin, and Lorine Neidecker, Gladding celebrates the intersections of language and thought, mind and nature.
