Auguries & Divinations

Auguries & Divinations tracks a young woman's coming of age, attuned

to the unspoken liabilities in women's lives, the suburban underworld, and the energies of eros. An older woman becomes the narrator's Beatrice in love and survival, and she returns to the New England of her childhood ready to claim a life of her own making, drawing on the classical practice of augury, or observing birds to discern human fate.

Auguries & Divinations received the 2023 May Sarton New Hampshire Poetry Prize (Bauhan), and it is a finalist for the 2024 New England Book Award in poetry. It's been reviewed in the Boston Globe, the Poetry Foundation, LitHub, On the Seawall, and Worcester Magazine, and it's available directly from Bauhan and from several independent bookstores and retailers:

“It has been years since I have read a new poet of such rhetorical sophistication and mastery. Wow. One thinks of the young Robert Lowell. Rhetorical mastery fueled by fury and necessity. Agony shaped and released by intelligence, by art. A breathtaking debut.” - Frank Bidart

“Like Elizabeth Bishop, like Frank Bidart, Treseler makes a mode of scrupulous attention its own kind of passion.” - Maureen N. McLane
