Lime
by Audrey Bohanan
Award Winner: 2002

"'The litany of the senses,' Audrey Bohanan tells us, makes 'a sheltering cove.' But the senses here seem to offer not so much shelter as instruction, in the best tradition of the New England these poems so acutely observe. Close attention to the world, in these skilled hands, becomes a study of time and mortality, sorrow and limit, joy and the possibility of hope. These poems sound like no one else, alive with a tensile strength and exacting, idiosyncratic perception. They speak to a lived, open-eyed engagement with a long-loved place. Lime is a singular, beautiful book." -- Mark Doty

Audrey Bohanan grew up on one of New Hampshire’s few-remaining farms. Her poems have appeared in many journals, including The Antioch Review, The Beloit Poetry Journal, Denver Quarterly, Seneca Review, Shenandoah, and The Virginia Quarterly Review. She has been the recipient of a Maine Arts Commission Fellowship and several other awards. Among the places where she has taught are The Johns Hopkins University and, currently, Champlain College. She lives in the coastal woodland area of southern Maine with her husband Jeff Lind.
