these poems speak to me. The soul is too blunt an instrument...
So many great poems! Of particular interest is how Anne Stevenson finds...makes form and voice to best deliver her poetic sounds, lines, ideas. There is a freedom from obvious style that is unusual and seriously impressive, each poem an isolate with integrity. Wonderful.
Difficult to rate this one - high or low? Uneven, uneven, uneven. Many resonant, intelligent crafted memorable poems; much that is grumpy, clumsy, narrow-minded. So, because I really liked it one minute, and hated it the next, this book gets an 'ok'.
