In Fire Muse, Cynthia Huntington returns to the back shore of Provincetown and the beach and dunes that inspired her 1999 memoir, The Salt House. Reflecting on place, time, and memory, Huntington’s poems display a kind of ecstasy born of love for her surroundings and a keen awareness of their sweep and details. Attentive to the outer world as well as what lies within, in these poems we find Huntington exploring her deepening bond with a familiar place.
