Children with Enemies, Paperback Book

Children with Enemies Paperback

Part of the Phoenix Poets series


There is a gentleness in the midst of savagery in Stuart Dischell's fifth full-length collection of poetry.

These poems are ever aware of the momentary grace of the present and the fleeting histories that precede the instants of time.

Part elegist, part fabulist, part absurdist, Dischell writes at the edges of imagination, memory, and experience.

By turns socially outward and inwardly reflective, comic and remorseful, the beautifully crafted poems of Children with Enemies transfigure dread with a reluctant wisdom and come alive to the confusions and implications of what it means to be human.
