Editorial Reviews

The Babies, by Sabrina Orah Mark, is the premier winner of the Saturnalia Books Poetry Contest, judged by renowned poet Jane Miller (Memory at These Speeds: New and Selected Poetry). Of The Babies, poet Claudia Rankine writes, “Rarely do we encounter poems that are so precisely framed, though on their surface seemingly whimsical and erratic. These poems are gorgeous, intelligent, and disturbing.”“War, dark drafts, desertions, abandoned homes—these poems move darkly down, as the poem, The Babies, concludes, ‘into a past I still swear I never had.’ They offer a look at a time we must face, or else face its consequences. It happens that, in The Babies, we aren’t sure if we are looking at past, present, or future. Sabrina Orah Mark ultimately posits what is surely meant as praise for poetry: timelessness.” - Jane Miller
