Sara Eliza Johnson's stunning, deeply visceral first collection, Bone Map (2013 National Poetry Series Winner), pulls shards of tenderness from a world where violence infuses the body, landscape, and dreams: a handful of blackberries gathered from bloodied arms, bee stings likened to pulses of sunlight, a honeycomb of marrow. "All moments will shine if you let them. / Will glisten like entrails in the sun." Inspired by sources as diverse as the post-apocalyptic elegies of the Anglo-Saxon's and the work of writers like Anna Akhmatova, Paul Celan, and Zbigniew Herbert, the author seeks to lyricize and transmute the violence and terror inherent in a world on the verge of collapse.Taken as a whole, the collection builds associatively; the figurative language makes long leaps, and words and images are continually revisited and revived, yielding a locomotive echo, a regenerative force on the linguistic level, that parallels the “quest” for redemption and resurrection throughout the book. The result is a deeply affecting composition that will establish the already decorated young author--she has won a Rona Jaffe Award and a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship--as an important and vital new voice in American poetry.
