Penelope Schott’s Newest Collection

Arroyo congratulates Penelope Schott (Issue Two) on the release of her newest collection of poetry, Crow Mercies, available through CALYX Books.

This stunning book of poems has been released to high praise, expanding on an already impressive career in the literary arts. Quoted from the webpage:

“Penelope Scambly Schott’s Crow Mercies celebrates the naming of small things in order to know basic truths. An accumulative momentum rises out of the mercy of an attentive eye: not for gazing at the surface of things but looking into the heart of what matters, what keeps us fully engaged as humans. There are no shortcuts in Crow Mercies.” – Yusef Komunyakaa

“To read these poems is to fall in love (again) with poetry. What the poet says to the lover is offered here to us… Truly we are fed, surprised, delighted, caused to laugh and to weep in the world that Penelope Scambly Schott brings home to us in Crow Mercies. … She is a master of language.” – Pat Schneider
