Sherry Robbins - or, The Whale - Just Buffalo Literary Center

or, The Whale

“Sherry Robbins, ubiquitous sailor at voyage in the allegorical myth of and in her life, explores her journey, the wovenings of woman currents, root drinker and her map of heaven. She is her life of adored poetry and summoning her poetry is here a balance of all the corners.”
—Michael Basinski

“‘We’ll sail / widdershins / and keep the cauldron / hot. Blubber / and apple chowder, / a mother-daughter banquet.’ So, in the title poem, Sherry Robbins focuses her rendering of Moby-Dick. Her female Ishmael moves counter to Melville’s as she voyages deeply: ‘We know almost everything / worth knowing, / for the womb / is our Yale College and our Harvard.’ Facing squarely her deepest fears, Robbins probes the inland sea of her body and of her city, builds upon the mother-daughter bond, and forces life’s boundaries out . . . At once a tribute to Melville and a vision of woman in our world, this sublime book . . . gives birth to Robbins’s grand hooded phantom….”
—David Landry
