South x South : Poems from Antarctica Paperback / softback


Winner of the Hollis Summers Poetry Prize. A vivid and insightful look at the culture and terrain of Antarctica, as well as the people who choose to live and work there, South x South celebrates and explores life at the extreme edge of our planet.

Blending travel narrative, historical research, and the surprises of magical realism, Hood presents life in Antarctica and the history of polar aviation as both a miracle of achievement yet also as a way to understand humanity's longing to be creatures of the heavens as well as the earth.

South x South is poetry at its most inventive and surprising, insisting that the world is stranger and more glorious than we ever might have guessed.
