The Universe in a Grain of Sand

To see a world in a grain of sand, And a heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand, And eternity in an hour. –William Blake, “Auguries of Innocence”

In Carol SmallwDiviningood’s new collection, Divining the Prime Meridian, the universe is examined, spun on its axis prism-like and finally, released. Smallwood finds the universe in a dragonfly, quilt-stitching, Clabber Girl baking soda and the bandana that she will wear after the chemotherapy treating her breast cancer.

Homespun Midwestern themes prevail through all of the seven sections: Domestic Life, The Natural World, Health and Welfare, Geography, The Mental Realm, Cities and finally, Seasons.

Wabash Prize for Nonfiction 2014 Sneak Peak!

Here’s a glimpse the Wabash Prize for Nonfiction 2014 winning essay, “Ghost Language,” by Jessica Wilbanks.

“Annie had once asked me if I could speak in tongues, and I denied it, even though I knew that language slept inside me like a baby and the slightest rocking could wake it up. The last time that had happened was the year before last, when some college friends and I had holed up in a cabin in the woods with a baggie full of mushroom caps and stems. Bad vibes saturated the scene. The man who owned the cabin had a menacing air about him, so my friends and I retreated to our bedroom at the height of our hallucinations. When I crawled into the bottom bunk, one of my friends flipped the light switch off and closed the door, leaving me in complete darkness. I was convinced I had gone blind …MORE
