Description
In a recent profile, The New Yorker placed Jorie Graham in the line of T. S. Eliot, Elizabeth Bishop, and John Ashbery, heralding this Pulitzer Prize-winner as a profound voice in American poetry. Now she seals her reputation with a book-length sequence of verse that is stunning in its sober encounter with destiny, eros, and law.

To "swarm" is to leave an originating organism -- a hive, a home country, a stable sense of one's body, a stable hierarchy of values -- in an attempt to find a new form that will hold. And that is the theme of this work of grandeur, a volume of poems teeming with mythological characters, eager to plead their stories into sense, desperate for some insight into the buried justice of natural law.
