Mountain Mother Poems by Alice Teeter

Mountain Mother Poems

In poems both mythic and marvelous, Alice Teeter traces a difficult journey between an adult child and a mountain mother. Her book captures the mystery of the mountainside as well as the rocky rift between generations. Each poem is a brilliant path “worn smooth,” seeking to “find another way” to express the universal dilemma of being a child of the earth. Many unexpected gifts await in this finely fretted book.

Elephant Girls by Alice Teeter

Elephant Girls now available

“As I read Alice Teeter’s Elephant Girls I imagined a calliope playing in the background and every once in a while a bass drum interrupting with a clap of thunder. Wonderfully engrossing sounds, images, deeps and highs. A truly enjoyable book of poems.”

Lewis Turco, author of The Book of Forms and The Familiar Stranger

When It Happens To You

“They’re strong, passionate poems… The love poems are plangent, beautiful and somehow painful… these poems [are] alive and pulsing with human feeling unmediated by anything outside the experience they convey…”

What People Are Saying About Alice's Poetry

In it [String Theory] there is singing, there is dancing to freedom, dancing to the bondage of the self.

Emmanuel Sigauke

Munyori Reviews

We took Alice Teeter's poetry collection with us on a trip, thinking we'd read a poem every now and then, and we ended up compulsively reading poem after poem, taking time to digest, then going at it again. Since then, I've read through the collection twice. This is insightful, moving, often-funny work by a woman who really knows how to make words do wonderful things together.

Kate Long

…a personal style of writing that is instantly recognizable as uniquely hers… [the collection] is at base ambiguous… but simultaneously clear and concrete… there isn't a poor poem, or even a mediocre one…

Lewis Turco

Author of The Book of Forms and The Familiar Stranger

In her wonderful and strange and wonderfully strange new collection, Alice Teeter writes about eros and myth, about humor and loss . . . In poems that are limpid and joyful, Alice Teeter shows both a mastery of craft and a gift of sustainment.

Need magic & mystery? Apply within…

Dan Veach

founder and editor, the Atlanta Review, Atlanta, Georgia

Imagination, compassion, wit, and wisdom volley in Teeter’s Elephant Girls . . . These poems bear witness to dreams that pester daylight even as realities unravel dreams. Part oracle, part trobairitz, Teeter reminds us of the unknown in the known, the quiet mystery of the ordinary.
