Kathleen Graber Publishes Acclaimed New Poetry Collection

September 16, 2019

The River Twice coverKathleen Graber, associate professor in the Department of English, has published a new collection of poems, The River Twice, (Princeton University Press, 2019) that is being described as an “elegiac meditation on impermanence and change.”

“The world presented in these poems is a fluid one in which so much — including space and time, the subterranean realm of dreams, and language itself — seems protean, as the speaker's previously familiar understanding of the self and the larger systems around it gives way,” according to the publisher.

Graber is the author of two previous collections, Correspondence (Saturnalia Books, 2006) and The Eternal City (Princeton University Press, 2010). The Eternal City was a finalist for a National Book Award and a National Book Critics Circle Award.
