Summary:
The Cradle Place is the new collection from Thomas Lux, a self-described ""recovering surrealist"" and winner of the Kingsley Tufts Award. These fifty-two poems bring to full life the ""refreshing iconoclasms"" Rita Dove so admired in Lux's earlier work. His voice is plainspoken but moody, humorous and edgy, and ever surprising. These are philosophical poems that ask questions about language and intention, about the sometimes untidy connections between the human and natural worlds. In the poem ""Terminal Lake,"" Lux undermines notions of benign nature, finding dark currents beneath the surface
