A native of Oregon’s Cascade foothills, Nadine S. St. Louis studied there and in Minnesota and California; she taught in the English Department at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire until her recent retirement. Now she is turning her attention more intensely to poetry, grandmothering, and herb gardening, but she gets her best ideas while walking Her poetry has appeared in such regional journals as North Coast Review, UpRiver, Wisconsin Academy Review, and Wisconsin Poets’ Calendar.
Weird Sisters hails the reader from the beginning of a century await-ing the impending collapse of a grand scheme to rob the ancients of their powers. St. Louis sees the ancients clearly though, in their modern reincarnations as maiden . . . mother . . . crone . . . . The poems leap WITH life, INTO life and with a hawk’s eye ABOVE life to observe, report, interpret and speak with a prophetic voice stopping short of foretelling If you feel in your gut something momentous is soon to occur, St. Louis’ poetry will affirm you are not alone. – Alan Jenkins
Weird Sisters soars with the pas-sion and strength of many women’s voices, none of them pigeon-holed into easy categories. The poet’s velvet words slip us into shockingly familiar worlds, full of nagging questions, inviting us to think our way through the remainder of our days. – Yvette Viets Flaten
