Poetry. This book collects the 86 poems that survive from the Mother Goose-influenced period of Lorine Neidecker: 1935 to 1945. The NEW GOOSE poems share the anti-authoritarian, subversive bent of their models, reflecting on the politics and economics of the time: the Depression, free market economics, socialism, and war. A key figure in the "Objectivist" poetry movement, Neidecker's poetic influence continues to be strongly felt. Her GRANITE PAIL, first published in 1985, is an SPD bestseller. "My man says the wind blows from the South,/ we go out fishing, he has no luck,/ I catch a dozen, that burns him up,/ I face the east and the wind's in my mouth,/ but my man has to have it in the south" -- from NEW GOOSE.
