Fimbul-Winter (or Fimbulvetr) takes its title from Norse mythology: three winters with no summers between. Drawing from sources as diverse as Anglo-Saxon literature, Chinese poetry, Emily Dickinson, and the blues, these poems seek sustenance and consolation in a harsh landscape. “Here is a poet who listens, who weighs until all comes remote, comes close, from that place where poetry itself begins: ‘the country of Erstwhile, of Meanwhile, of Still.’” – Marianne Boruch
