Domain by Barbara Nickel

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


The poems in Domain embody forces both generative and destructive, taking the reader into private and political, inner and outer spheres — from sisters juggling oranges in the circus ring of a Renoir painting to a wedding ring lost from the hatch of Apollo 16 on its way back from the moon. In this tour de force of image and sound, Barbara Nickel mines a wealth of poetic forms: sonnets, glosas, a sestina, a triolet, free verse sequences, and invented and traditional treatments of line, rhyme, rhythm, and stanza.
