About The Jaguars That Prowl Our Dreams
In The Jaguars That Prowl Our Dreams: New and Selected Poems 1974 to 2018, Mary Mackey writes of life, death, love, and passion with intensity and grace. Her poems are hugely imaginative and multi-layered. Part One contains forty-eight new poems including twenty-one set in Western Kentucky from 1742 to 1975; and twenty-six unified by an exploration of the tropical jungle outside and within us, plus a surreal and sometimes hallucinatory appreciation of the visionary power of fever. Part Two offers the reader seventy-eight poems drawn from Mackey’s seven previous collections including SUGAR ZONE, winner of the 2012 Oakland PEN Josephine Miles Award for Literary Excellence.
