The Dream of Reason

The Dream of Reason

In her debut collection, Jenny George wields a poetic voice marked by focus and image-driven strangeness that is saturated in the horrors of the wild and the tamed. Responding to the post-industrial landscape of rural life, Jenny George braids together regional plains poetry and the darkly fantastic imagery of medieval painting.
