Sarah Anne Cox
We admire Sarah Anne Cox for her precision, her short lines which overflow
in the mind to create specific and timeless renderings of anarchy, civility,
beauty, terror. She has immense senses of history and of humor. Her work
is grounded in her study of and play with ancient languages and texts.
Her poems bind current political situations and popular culture to religious
and philosophical traditions in surprising and exciting ways. Cox is the
author of Home of Grammar (Double Lucy, 1997) and definite articles
(a+bend, 1999). Her poetry and critical work has appeared in numerous
journals, including Arshile, Five Fingers Review, How2, Scout, Syllogism,
and Tripwire, and she is an associate editor of Outlet. Cox
rounds things out by singing with the band heavenacid.
