Already The World
Selected by Gerald Stern as the winner of the 1995 Tom and Stan Wick Poetry Award
Already the World, winner of the Tom and Stan Wick Poetry Award is Victoria Redel's debut poetry collection.
“I like Victoria Redel’s poems because of their braveness and their lucidity… There is no flight here to incoherence; the poems speak plainly and, in some cases, beautifully. The music is lovely and the tone, distinctive…‘Food’ for example has to be one of the most passionate, chilling, tender, poems of the decade.”
“Redel is writing love poems of a new generation of women. Sensual and daring, there are possibilities in these poems that all of us are discovering.”
