Red Deer

Red Deer Anne Marie Macari

In Red Deer, Anne Marie Macari, the author of Ivory Cradle, unearths a hidden prehistoric world of art and art-makers. Her poems delves deep within the earth, exploring the prehistoric caves of France and Spain, communing with the lives and art of those who once inhabited them. Writing from a variety of perspectives and in diverse voices, Macari connects us with a distant past, with "memory / stumbling into mineral stillness. . .a forgotten animal / across my shoulders.”

Praise for the Book

“The poems explore the divine feminine, the connection between animals and humans, and the ways we experience and express the sacred. Though minimalist in approach, the poems, like cave art, are far from simplistic, sparking questions and inspiring rumination. . . . Red Deer reminds us to return to the space, or state of mind, in which we are most aware of our connection to the physical world, while also honoring our link to all that is nonphysical and invisible.”—Janet St. John, Booklist
