A Little More Red Sun on the Human

A selection of poems by celebrated poet Gillian Conoley that spans her arresting body of work: from the idiosyncrasies of Texas girlhood toward an encompassing inquiry into spirit and matter, individual and state.




New & Selected Poems

Gillian Conoley’s selected poems assemble a shockingly varied body of work, comprising narrative, lyric, and fragmented forms. Her coruscating vibrant poems are informed by visual art and film, political engagement and playful linguistic constructions. Throughout, one can trace Conoley’s obsessions and concerns: democracy, metaphysics, motherhood, gender and race, futurity and history.
