Robin Davison teaches in the creative writing program at the University of Houston – Downtown and has recently been named poet laureate of Houston. “Robin Davidson’s work is deeply engendered, and she writes of ordinary women—rooted in earth, reaching for light—caught between personal, social, and historical forces. She is a learned poet—her work rings with the work of photographers, painters, and other poets—who understands the work of poetry to bring light of darkness and music out of silence.”—Edward Hirsch

51JyC81DHoL._SX348_BO1,204,203,200_Harper LeeGo Set a Watchman

From the publisher – Twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch—”Scout”—returns home from New York City in the 1950’s to visit her aging father, Atticus. Set against the backdrop of the civil rights tensions and political turmoil that were transforming the South, Jean Louise’s homecoming turns bittersweet when she learns disturbing truths about her close-knit family, the town, and the people dearest to her.


C.S. Lewis – The Collected Poems

Yes, C.S. Lewis wrote poetry.

Although best known for his prose and for his clear, lucid literary criticism, Christian apologetics, and imaginative Ransom and Narnia stories, he considered himself a poet for the first two and a half decades of his life. Owen Barfield recalls that anyone who met Lewis as a young man in the early 1920s at Oxford University quickly learned he was one whose ruling passion was to become a great poet. At that time if you thought of Lewis you automatically thought of poetry. This volume includes poems from 1907 to 1963. The book demonstrates a dedicated, determined, & passionate poet at work & illustrates the degree & depth to which poetry shaped Lewis’s literary, intellectual, emotional, & spiritual life.
