Morri Creech's third collection of poems, The Sleep of Reason, is a lyrical examination of liminal states of consciousness and experience. Including both a surprising take on Keats's ""Ode to a Nightingale"" and a dark meditation on the perils of the sublime, The Sleep of Reason explores the anxieties, horrors, and dreams that flash just beneath the surface of the waking mind, combining formal elegance and an acknowledgment of literary tradition with a fresh, contemporary voice. ""A lovely mastery of craft... A poet to watch and, for poetry devotees, certainly to read.""-Library Journal
