On Tuesday evening at 192 Books, the poet Tess Gallagher read from her collection of new and selected poems, Midnight Lantern. Included in this comprehensive bevy is The Tallest Men in Europe, which appeared in our May 16th issue. After her reading, Gallagher and I spoke in finer detail about her work. The first poem of the new collection, Red Perch, begins with loss. Death is threaded throughout the collection-death by early illness, murder, the Vietnam War. Yet these losses are offset by births: there are foals, lambs, eggs, toddlers.

We brave into ourselves each time we put on our lantern-light and step out―as a gleam steps out its overlapping forms to lift a path from its nest of darkness. ―from "Midnight Lantern"

Included in this generous book are Gallagher's signature nocturnes―for the changing Pacific Northwest, for her hardscrabble childhood, and for her late husband, Raymond Carver, and others.

Met expectations.

I heard Tess Gallagher read some of the poems from this collection - thrilling! I heartedly recommend it for any lover of poetry -- or even for someone who wants to be introduced to poetry. She has written about 9 books of poems plus short stories, but "Midnight Lantern" contains some of those plus new poems as well.
Vetibert
Tess Gallagher's lyrical nuances take the reader through a life time of love, pain, loss and discovery and the encounter of hope. The voice of the poet traverses emotional experiences through her selected poems. In the new poems from the West Ireland, Gallagher brings Lough Arrow alive.
