Living in the Resurrection

T. Crunk

Living in the Resurrection, winner of the 1994 Yale Series of Younger Poets competition, is about the tensions between allegiance to the history and tradition of the author’s birthplace in western Kentucky and a longing for a more expansive life beyond the confines of that dying culture. Crunk seeks to articulate and honor that which is sacred in the local, the particular, the mundane—in relations with the land, with family, and with one’s forebears.
