1950: Poems by Nancy Dillingham



Nancy Dillingham shares with us her precise observations of nature and astute glimpses into a not-always-simpler ‘simpler time.’ Her work is personal and universal. In very few words, these poems plumb deep emotion.”
–Karen Paul Holmes, author of Untying the Knot

Rating:  ***** [5 of 5 Stars!]


“In this excellent book of poems, Nancy Dillingham writes of times past and time passing, and she does so with a beautiful balance of concision and eloquence. 1950: Poems is a delight.”
–Ron Rash, best-selling author of Serena


“In 1950: Poems, Nancy Dillingham draws on her heritage in the Appalachian Mountains to craft poems that explore a complex landscape, one that is both emotional and geographical. These poems may take inspiration from rural mountain life in the 1950s, but they reveal universal themes of love, loss, birth, death, and the role of religion. . . .
They ‘set the world on fire,’ as Dillingham writes in the poem ‘Summer Etude.'”
–Pat Riviere Seel, author of No Turing Back
