Overview
In a Beautiful Country examines America's suburbs and exurbs where "The thrown newspaper fails / to reach the steps." Taking place beside hospital beds and amid outlet malls, within earshot of military bases and in the light of horror movies, these poems mourn the loss of parents, friends, and our sense of our nation. Turning to ballad-like rhythms, Prufer critiques romanticized visions of art while asserting its central role in citizenship and empire.
