Megan Gannon publishes book of poetry
Assistant Professor of English Megan Gannon has published a book of poetry, White Nightgown, which is available from Apprentice House Press (https://www.apprenticehouse.com/?product=white-nightgown-poems).
From the ruins of ocean liners and model cities, to the dark impulses of Greek myths and biblical narratives, Gannon casts a wide thematic net in tracing the legacy of desire in the 20th and 21st centuries. With the lyric compression of Emily Dickinson, the syntactical momentum and surrealist imagery of Sylvia Plath, the poems in White Nightgown examine how desire serves as both a creative and a destructive force, drawing loved ones near to us and pushing them away, destroying nations as well as shaping them.
