FALL 2016, Volume 46, No. 2


The fall 2016 issue of Seneca Review is a book of poems, Deborah Tall’s final collection, Afterings. It is a remarkable volume by a poet and nonfiction writer at the peak of her powers. Eavan Boland has called it “an essential collection,” and Mary Ruefle says the poems have “not what is to be expected – hints of cessation – but an overwhelming sense of blossoming.”

Deborah Tall edited Seneca Review for twenty-five years, until 2006. Her previous book of poems Summons was chosen by Charles Simic for Sarabande Books’ Kathryn Morton A. Prize. From Where We Stand: Recovering a Sense of Place was reprinted last year by Syracuse University Press. Her final book of nonfiction, A Family of Strangers, a book-length lyric essay, was a finalist for the National Jewish Book Award in biography/autobiography in 2006.
