"[Paula] Bohince is more naturalist than romantic, meaning that her poems above all honor their dark side, their realism, their edge."-Stanley Plumly Spanning decades and set on a decrepit farm, Incident at the Edge of Bayonet Woods begins with a speaker invoking her dead father. As details are gradually uncovered, we learn the father was murdered by a trusted laborer.
