In these wild, intense, and fiercely crafted sonnets and other poems, Myrna Stone takes us on a journey through time and the psyche that is both novelistic and deeply lyrical. The range of voices—from Martin Luther’s to Mae West’s—explores both mortality and what might lie just beyond it.
Myrna Stone is the author of five books of poetry, including In the Present Tense: Portraits of My Father, which was a Finalist for the 2014 Ohioana Book Award in Poetry, and The Casanova Chronicles, which was also a Finalist for the 2011 Ohioana Book Award in Poetry. Her poems have been published in Poetry, The Massachusetts Review, The Southwest Review, Boulevard, New Orleans Review, Quarterly West, Nimrod, River Styx, and in nine anthologies. Stone has received two Ohio Arts Council Grants, the 2001 Ohio Poet of the Year Award, and is a founding member of The Greenville Poets. She lives in Greenville, Ohio, with her husband in an 18th century house they moved from Rhode Island.
