Elizabeth Bradfield Approaches Ice and Glows   1 comment

This Thursday on Woman-Stirred Radio, April 22nd, at 5:00 (eastern), please join Merry Gangemi in welcoming back Elizabeth Bradfield, author of Interpretive Work (Arktoi, 2008), and a new collection of poems, Approaching Ice.

The poems in Approaching Ice “are adventures in far more than subject matter. Their themes, to be sure, involve risk and stoicism, the testing of the will and the spirit needed to confront icy wastes” (Eavan Boland).

“How I hate,” Bradfield writes through the voice of Lynne Cox, the intrepid cold water swimmer, “the thoughtlessness of breath on land, the arms/ that pull me to my awkward vertical,/ the language anchored/—-even here—-/ to the wet shore” (96).

Elizabeth Bradfield grew up in Tacoma, Washington. She holds an MFA from the University of Alaska, Anchorage, is a former Wallace Stegner Fellow, and lives on Cape Cod. She works as a naturalist.

So please tune in or stream us live, this Thursday, April 22nd at 5:00 (eastern), on WGDR.
