The Price of Light

Pimone Triplett


Winner of the 2003 Levis Poetry Prize
selected by David St. John

Of Pimone Triplett’s The Price of Light, David St. John, judge for the Levis Poetry Prize, writes “[this is] a collection of astonishing scope and power. Her poems are linguistically electric and each of her delicate meditations reflects an enviable intellectual ease. This is a volume of poetry that can travel from Beato Angelico to Robert Schumann with passion and vision, from Bangkok to rural America with a truly natural eloquence. Lyrically elegant and constantly inventive, DoubleLife is an amazing blend of the traditional and the radical in present day American poetry. Deeply intimate and yet historically informed, these poems weave a complicated multicultural tapestry that speaks not only for this poet, but for all of us.”
