A Map of Faring holds three major poetical sequences meditating on particular places: an English wood, a Transylvanian valley, and a house in southern France, as well as poems of places in Austria, Germany, The Czech Republic, Italy, Spain and elsewhere. In these, landscape and encounters become the vocabulary of a personal exploration of senses of time and passage, and the fate of small localities in the spread of global forces. A Map of Faring reckons with acts large and small, that are transforming the world, even as it searches to understand, within that reckoning, the possible regenerative presence of art.

Free Verse Editions represents a joint venture betweenFree Verse: A Journal of Contemporary Poetry & Poetics and Parlor Press. Te series will publis tree to five books of poetry per year. We are especially interested in collections tat use language to dramatize a singular vision of experience, a mastery of craft, a deep knowledge of poetic tradition, and a willingness to take risks. As te series title suggests, te series is oriented toward free verse, but we will appily consider poetry written in traditional forms. Collections sould ave individual poems publised in well-known journals. We will read collections tat do not ave a track record of publications, but it is unlikely tat tey will be accepted for publication. For more information about te series, visit te series website: see ttp://www.parlorpress.com/freeverse/index.tml. TeFree Versejournal is on te Web ttp://englis.cass.ncsu. edu/freeverse/
