Little Ice Age Reviews
Maureen Seaton is unafraid to navigate the proverbial planes of the “ice age”—our darkest winters and our yearnings for life collide as the speaker explores both memory and desire in light of the reconciliation between past and present. Seaton’s poems in Little Ice Age are full of lines that will immediately strike you with their beauty. At times humorous and wonderfully odd, and at other times complex and very much relevant in its themes of sexuality, religion, violence, and equal rights, Seaton’s book is undoubtedly a moving collection of poetry and is a delight to read from start to finish. To list just a few of the lines that stunned so effortless:“swallowing the fresh-killed heart of God”“I once taught red. I held it up for the class to love, far and away the most conspicuous color”“Blue-black ink of a suicide. Silent as a thumb print. Perfect irretrievable light.”“Some wept secretly into hands shaped like steeples, others slept with their eyes open to receive the light.”“All my pieces waited on my shoulders for the benediction. I stuttered their names. I blessed them.”Review by Mary Lee
