Editorial Reviews

"This collection, read beginning to end, read as a kind of novel, as a roman, isbreathtakingly clear, crystalline, and compelling.... Those of us who knew best themore recent large and complex Graham poems are now invited to reread the earlier,and to see in them, perhaps for the first time, their full complexities andcompulsions."-- Boston Review"One of the best, and most intelligent, poets in the language.... She is like no oneelse, neither in her rhythms nor in her insistence on opening up, scrutinizing, andeven reversing our experience of time and space."-- Times Literary Supplement"Jorie Graham’s poems are philosophically and historically alert, and their acts ofthought arise with almost instinctual urgency from an astonished responsivenessthat in itself becomes part of what she names ’the vivid performance of the present.’... Reaching with quickened sensitivity for poetry’s supply of the associative, sonic,and formal properties rustling beyond mere denotation, she also develops a geniusfor apprehending and scrutinizing human perceptions, reflections, and desires.....Graham’s poetry is among the most sensuously embodied and imaginativewriting we have."-- New York Times Book Review
