HER FAMILIARS is Jane Satterfield's third book of poetry.
This collection winds its way through civilization, history, and popular culture like a newly imagined animal and becomes a "familiar" to every reader.
Kevin Prufer had this to say about it: "Jane Satterfield brings an astonishing range of subjects to HER FAMILIARS, handling them with keen intelligence, musical intricacy, and tonal dexterity. Here, she tells of a child's encounter of tragedy through a poetry recitation, or the life of an exemplary (and little known) woman ceramic artist, or the collapse of human communities through history (concluding, disconcertingly, with the vanishing of bees today). Jane Satterfield's poems are intimate, graceful, and brilliant, composed around issues of social and political importance. Reading them, I feel I have made a friend whose company I enjoy and whose insight, wit and commitment I greatly admire. These are terrific poems."
