Angela Hansen’s Fencelines, written during a time of deep hurt, explores how she found healing in the countryside surrounding her Nebraska acreage. Her imagery captures the strength and tenacity of the prairie and how it affects her own soul. Grounded in the passing of the seasons, both physically and mentally, these poems chronicle her journey along, over, and around the fencelines of the past decade.
“Fencelines is a body of work encapsulating Hansen’s personal journey of self-preservation and growth, “where all the Nebraska seasons meet for coffee and gossip.” Hansen exhibits the resilience of womanhood among the prairie. Her poems read like Polaroids; she carries her readers through colorful snapshots of her personal love, loss, pain, and acceptance, all nestled between vivid, organic imagery of an unforgiving, yet fruitful countryside existence. Every poem in Hansen’s collection embodies cathartic release.”
