Snake in the Parsonage includes the poems for which Jean Janzen received The Creative Writing Fellowship in Poetry from the National Endowment for the Arts (selected by a panel of major poets).
Here Janzen shows us life--colored deeply and in irrepressible light. She finds both ecstasy and incompleteness -- while waiting, at the piano and in the halls of the old people's home, lying in the field, shrieking in the cellar, standing at the blackboard. Poems here include:
Anna Reiger at the Blackboard
Note to Dee
Snake in the Parsonage
How They Loved
Finding the Pearl
Story of Leave
The Jewish Bridge
For fans of Janzen or poetry in general, reading these will be a rich, rewarding experience.
