It is the season of separation & falling / Away,” Fagan writes. And solike the abundance of summer diminishing to winter, and like the bark of the sycamore, which sheds to allow the tree’s expansionthe speaker of these poems documents a painful loss and tenuous rebirth, which take shape against a forested landscape. Black walnuts fall where no one can eat or smell them. Cottonwood sends out feverish signals of pollen. And everywhere are sycamores, informed by Fagan’s scientific and mythological research.
Spellbinding and ambitious, Sycamore is an important new work from a writer whose poems gleam like pearls or slowly burning stones” (Philip Levine).
