Description

"Cole's splendid ear orchestrates awakenings." --Forrest Gander, author of Twice Alive

Peter Cole's luminous new book is in many ways his freest and most moving to date. In Draw Me After, Cole evolves a supple, singular music that charts regions of wonder and danger, from Eden as a place of first response and responsibility to modern sites of natural and political catastrophe.

At the heart of the volume lie two remarkable series: one translates drawings by Terry Winters into a textured language spun from the material abstractions of Winters's art; the other winds through the book in dreamlike fashion, offering prismatic and often haunting meditations on the letters of the Hebrew alphabet--in kabbalistic tradition, the building blocks of existence. Inventive and receptive, physical, metaphysical, and playful, Cole's poetry disturbs and enchants with "a quiet, streaming power . . . that leads the reader back to it over and over again" (Ray González, The Bloomsbury Review).
