Poet Robin Beth Schaer (’07 + ’12) publishes debut collection
Two-time poetry Fellow Robin Beth Schaer (’07 + ’12) is already receiving accolades and stunning reviews for her first collection of poetry, Shipbreaking, published this month by Anhinga Press.
In an August 1st review in The Rumpus, Julie Marie Wade wrote: Some poets play the spoons, but Schaer plays the knives. Her words are not so much written as carved, her lines not so much offerings as incisions. As a consequence, whatever this speaker tells me—”Even coral must dream of cobwebs,” “Without grief, the gun is artifact, “A javelin anchors the air/ between us”—I’ll believe.
