Overview


Poetry. "Gretchen Mattox's Goodnight Architecture is a fine example of a collection that houses mind and heart harmoniously. She has read her Louise Gluck and learned from her without being derivative in the least: 'it must have tasted like grief, the narrative flame. Nothing fit again, a miscalculation of weather.' Small words ('again') carry so much weight in these poems, working to add texture and emotional complexity.
