From Brazil’s Bay of All Saints to Philadelphia, from Florida’s brutal humidity to the drought-scorched Cape Verde Islands, Bartram’s Garden takes in the pulse and ache of the natural world: the bittern balanced in the swamp, cashew fruit’s astringent flesh. With a gardener’s eye for color and motif, and a mother’s open-hearted sensibility, these poems explore vivid landscapes both intimate and foreign.
ELEANOR STANFORD is the author of The Book of Sleep (Carnegie Mellon University Press, 2008) and a memoir, História, História: Two Years in the Cape Verde Islands (2013). She lives in the Philadelphia area with her husband and three sons.

Editorial Reviews

“All live wonders of the world—humans, plants and animals—are citizens of meaning in these poems. Each poem is a tesseract which reveals the intimate connections between things seemingly at great distance in time and place.”—Kazim Ali
