And it is in my hands. Due to a miscommunication with the publisher, the books had to chase me across the country, but I now have a batch to offer. You can buy the book on the WordTech website, http://www.wordtechweb.com/order.htm
or you can contact me for a signed copy at a slight discount ($15 instead of $18, and mailing is included, as a special hot-off-the-press offer).
The poems in Made and Remade respond to William Paley’s book, Natural Theology, published in 1802. Famous for his analogy, “suppose I had found a watch upon the ground . . . the inference we think is inevitable, that the watch must have had a maker . . . .,” the book presents Paley’s case for creation by design. As cracks developed in a once coherent world view, we have been left with patches and pieces – the material of poetry – with which to make meaning. The poems move in many directions, reflecting on how much has changed in 200 years.
