Book Reviews

Convalescence At Its Best

Internal West
by Priscilla Becker  

"The poems are like quiet houses, constructed of straightforward
language and streamlined structures, in which a spiritual violence
takes root, blooms, and is examined as one would a cherished pet."

Reviewed by Adam L. Dressler

The Sun Also Rises

by Peter Richards  

"Rather than engineer false salvations, Richards draws on his nutshell-autocracy to work up a ready allegory and elevate to allegorical status stuff that used to just muck around as nouns."

Reviewed by Joyelle McSweeney

One Crystal in Another: A Translation Conversation

No Shelter: The Selected Poems of Pura López-Colomé
Translated by Forrest Gander  

"I find myself frequently grateful to Gander for two conversations
as I read his translations--the conversation between him and me,
and the earlier conversation he held with López-Colomé's poems."

Reviewed by Mark Schafer

No Part of This Has Any Point

A Point Is That Which Has No Part
by Liz Waldner  

"Whatever the poem’s message may be—any guess on my part
would be just that—the mechanism is wordplay."

Reviewed by Adam L. Dressler
