Review: The Genome Rhapsodies

Anna George Meek is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts grant, two Minnesota State Arts Board fellowships, and an Academy of American Poetry Prize, and her poetry has been published in Poetry, The Kenyon Review, The Yale Review, Virginia Quarterly Review, and dozens of other journals. Her most recent book of poetry, The Genome Rhapsodies (2015, Ashland Poetry Press) is a delightful reflection on the things we inherit—genetic, material, and literary. Filled with bricolage, unusual forms (e.g., poems as annotated bibliographies), and a constant interweaving of science and poetry, The Genome Rhapsodies demonstrates “the power of words to shape our lives, our memories and our bodies, and the complexities of how we write and are written by our own histories.” Read our review of The Genome Rhapsodies here.
