In this MP3Lit.com exclusive, Alcosser recites her poem “The Entomologists’ Landscape.”
“Sandra Alcosser’s superbly sure-voiced poems possess intelligence and passion in equal measure, and they explore, question, surprise, and inform in utterly distinctive ways. Here is a poet who knows the fine-grained textures of thought, the precise distinctions of feeling, and the lush wisdom of language itself.” -Jane Hirshfield
