Language for the Living and the Dead


Pre-order your copy today!
Language for the Living and the Dead is a new collection of poetry by Chris Ransick, appointed Denver Poet Laureate in 2006 and winner of the Colorado Book Award. These hauntingly beautiful poems explore the tense, sometimes sloppy line between life and death, joy and despair, and how paying attention to the simple delights of good friends, love, and natural beauty are the ingredients for a good life. Here is a master of words and imagery at his finest.

The voice of these poems lives in myth and dream, and therefore holds
the secrets of our deepest hopes and desires. Ransick knows how to beautifully
turn a line, forging music and image into moments masterfully
crafted—moments that contain the high and low, bird wing and cloud,
screwballs and mud. These poems haunt, humor, and cajole, while moving
me to higher ground. By which I mean to say they lift me up and give
me a new perspective on what it is to be human.
—Michael J. Henry, author of No Stranger Than My Own
