Undid in the Land of Undone
An Inland Seas Poetry Book
ForeWord Magazine‘s Book of the Year Award Finalist
“In Upton’s fifth book of poetry, she returns to tableaus in history, both mythical and actual. She pictures Emily Dickinson with blossoms in her hands, Dido standing before the burning pyre at Carthage; even lines from Shakespeare become fodder for a rich imagining of scene. The poems move between ancient settings and modern metaphorical language, high seriousness and humor.”
—Camille-Yvette Welsch, ForeWord Magazine
