Inextricable Fusion: The Poetry of Patricia Goedicke

Patricia Goedicke published 13 books of poetry from 1968-2009 and taught Creative Writing at The University of Montana from 1981-2003.  Goedicke's works often weave together a broad range of images and themes.  For example, in her review of As Earth Begins to End, Robin Becker writes, "[Goedicke's] genius, in this book, becomes her language for linking individual sorrow to the sorrows of the environment, of globalization, of science and politics."

This exhibit draws from Patricia Goedicke's literary manuscripts at The University of Montana, Missoula.  It is intended to illustrate Goedicke's approach to poetry as teacher, writer, and critic.
