The red tower : new & selected poems by David Rigsbee( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

These poems focus on the relationship between memory and place, self and other, and history and story. The poems record not only the fact that events and experiences bring us to loss, to the Adamic vastnesses, but that their transformation into memory can also uncover occasions for redemptive hope. The poems are grounded in the South and in generations of family. They move through suicide, disease, survival and dementia to the spreading loam of racism, spiritual erosion, and permanently deferred dreams; from the hardscrabble seasons and their too-brief flowerings, to empathy suspended elegiacally over loss, shaping the climate of felt life

Cloud journal : poems by David Rigsbee( Book )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cloud Journal by David Rigsbee is a collection of two sonnet sequences. The first sequence, "Sonnets to Hamlet," narrates the tragedy of a fire in the Imperial Foods chicken processing plant in Hamlet, North Carolina, that killed twenty-five people. The second sequence, "Cloud Journal," is an extended meditation on place and perception. Rigsbee's book shows both his own mastery of this classical form and the potential of the form itself, to accommodate narrative and lyric with a contemporary voice.--
