The Old Dominion
Winner of the 2012 Tampa Review Prize for Poetry
Jennifer Key takes the title of her first book of poetry from the nickname for the state of Virginia, but she extends the evocative phrase to reflect her complex understanding of domination and dominion in a multi-layered cultural context. The Old Dominion speaks to us with exceptional, insistent images and ideas. Her poems develop into intricate thematic relationships in a gorgeous collection.
Jennifer Key is the author of The Old Dominion (University of Tampa, 2013), and was was previously a Diane Middlebrook Fellow at the University of Wisconsin. She is a John and Renée Grisham Fellow in poetry at the University of Mississippi.
