She explores three different types of ranges-mountains, grazing ranges, and the scope and spectrum of light, a constant motif. Employing a variety of verse forms, she evokes the landscapes, animals, folk art, prehistoric peoples, and historical figures of this captivating area. Scenes and objects are not inert, but humanized by the action of past figures or by observers, seeing the West, modifying it through their presence and being modified in turn: Green emotion binds / the muscled landscape to our gaze. The region as a whole, with its tremendous differences and varied history, but shared identity, comes alive under Brosmans touch-to be experienced and admired. Catharine Savage Brosmans poetry collections include Places in Mind and The Muscled Truce, among others. A native of Colorado and a longtime resident of New Orleans, she is a professor emerita of French at Tulane University. Her work has appeared in numerous publications, including La Nouvelle Revue Francaise, Europe (Paris), Critical Quarterly, and Sewanee Review.
