Westminster College is home to a nationally recognized undergraduate-produced literary magazines: Ellipses … Literature and Art. It’s also home to the celebrated Anne Newman Sutton Weeks Poetry Series. This weekend, the two entities join forces with a reading by renowned poet Barbara Daniels, marking the publication of 2009’s Ellipses ...
Balancing nuanced juxtaposition, often uses contradictory images and emotional
duality to get at the heart and guts of life and
nature. In her poem “The Woman Who Tries
to Believe,” she writes, “She believes a rose
turning in its moment/ of near perfection does
exist apart from its dead self,/ the mat of rotted
petals like a hole stabbed by crows/ in the side
of a dead raccoon, crows that remember/ and
seek the dead heart.” Her collection Rose Fever
(2008) includes poems originally published in
Ellipses …, making her an obvious choice to read
at the magazine’s 2009 debut.
