More impressive than Teresa Whites light touch on the tragic and her way of keeping the reader pleasurably off-balance is the fact that no word is wasted here. Every morsel of her diction counts. And she knows how to cut a line with unerring accuracy. She is a poet who not just deserves but requires our attention.Whites work has been published in such journals as Artemis, Octavo, Snow Monkey, Grasslimb, and Blue Moon Review. Ms. White has been writing poetry for more than 40 years and her masterful way of depicting the deepest human emotion with words has given her a huge following from around the world.Political topics are regularly touched on in Whites poetry. She has written about war, the pillaging of the environment, womens abuse, marriage, depression and even animal abuse with a delicate sensitivity that can only come from the pen of someone who has experience. White has suffered from bipolar disorder all of her adult life, and she said that she has used the poetry not only as a stabilizing factor, but as a mechanism for expressing her pain, delight and care. With more than a thousand poems to her credit and a long list of publications that have applauded their originality and pathos, White is nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for this newest work.
