Royal Crown

Royal Crown (Wild Leek Press, 2014) is a heroic crown of sonnets about being true to oneself. Candace Butler brings a memorable voice to contemporary Appalachian literature.

Her poems are as mysterious and imagistic as the forested environment they are written from, as in “I want a heartbeat like the thunderous hooves of horses.” These poems are playful, courageous, strong, and full of life with an ancient use of language flayed by a rich sense of rebellion.
