The Softened Ground (Dogfish Head Poetry Prize Winner 2012)


Tina Raye Dayton's Dogfish Head Poetry Prize-winning poetry

“Dayton's voice quietly fills the page, offers up familiar landscapes such as frozen fields, a dark neighborhood, or a kitchen table, and uses them to express the loss of a loved one, the connection between people and the natural spaces we inhabit, and the occasional violence we uncover in our ordinary lives.”

—Scott Whitaker, National Book Critics Circle
