Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0976700670, Paperback)

Capturing the Dead is a sequence of poems embodying the perspectives of Civil War soldiers and photographers, primarily that of a fictional war photographer named Noah Williams. Winner of the 2007 Stevens Poetry Manuscript Competition, it is praised by contest judge Jeff Gundy "for the clarity of its focus, the precision of its language, and the depth and subtlety of its emotional resonances. Poet A. Van Jordan attests to the power of Terry's book: "The language of this stunningly accomplished debut collection is more haunting than the images of the dead in war that it captures. . . . Don't be fooled by the look back into history; these poems are relevant today and resonate with us."
