Publishers Description

Award-winning poet, Jean Janzen, sends us to explore the mystery of our connection to this earth, our dust and its dust, in this collection of poems.
Award-winning poet. Jean Janzen demonstrates powerfully why she received The Creative Writing Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts. Janzen's poems send us to explore the mystery of our connections to this earth, our dust and its dust. These poems show us with certainty what we sense persistently-- that we are unequivocally physical and yet undeniably spiritual, so ephemeral and yet so bound.
Jean Janzen, a well-known poet from Fresno, California, conducts readings of her poetry around North America and teaches several university classes. "Jean Janzen's poems are lucid, clean, beautifully detailed--but she also knows well how fierce the hungers of body and soul are." --Jeff Gundy, poet

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tasting the Dust: Poems  Oct 3, 2000
Janzen, raised within a seemingly closed "Mennonite" life, opens a door for us to experience the true fullness, joy, pain and earthiness of her experience. Using the "dust" as "sill" into her world, we are transported to a luscious sensuality of relationship and intimacy. At other times we feel the draft of chill wind when reading "Ice," and we are there, with her, looking in or out of the window. No matter the content, we are pulled into her poems.

Janzen has an uncanny ability to tell her story while at the same time letting it be our story.

These poems are entrance into mystical life . . . like dust when held in the fist too tightly, they vanish within us and a longing for more remains.

This is the stuff that inspires others to chance at writing poetry. May her tribe increase!
