Abstract:

Deeply inspired by Alfred Lord Tennyson's poem, "The Lady of Shalott," Sarah Gridley's third collection of poems brings the essence of this literary reference into the challenges of current era. Trusting in the ambiguities of text and textile, spirit and matter, masculine and feminine, Loom calls Tennyson's poetic specter back to life, out of isolation, circumscription, and distraction. A book of poems set against the work of disconnection, it searches for reconstructions of gender, dwelling, and the sacred.
