An Octave Above Thunder presents a collection of poems spanning more than twenty years in the career of Carol Muske, who has won acclaim for work which marries sophisticated intelligence, emotional resonance, and technical craft. What most distinguishes Carol Muske's poetry is her awareness of the complicated web into which the personal and the political, the familial and the feminist, are woven. Filled with audible contemplation--invocation, echo, dreamsong, dirge--Muske's lyrical precision, assured touch, and exacting clarity make her one of the most talented poets of her generation.
