Goddess Wears Cowboy Boots

Goddess Wears Cowboy Boots by Katherine Hoerth

by Katherine Hoerth

Winner of the 2015 Texas Institute of Letters' Helen C. Smith Memorial Award for Best Book of Poetry published by a Texas writer in 2014

These are poems that lovers of poetry will much admire, fans of stories will enjoy, and poets will find astonishing for the poetic mastery in the integration of form and meaning.
Katherine Hoerth is a lyric poet of anecdotes and stories. Rather than tell a story her poems immerse readers in it with images speaking to all five senses. Open the book to any page and you will find the richness of her imagery.

Adding to the lyrical effect of the masterful use of imagery are the sounds. Most lines are blank verse, a subtle, musical form that in Hoerth's hands enhances the words rather than intruding upon them. In these pages the poet loans us her remarkable sensibilities so we can experience her world, and if we are wise, we can apply her sensual wisdom to new examinations of our own lives.
