More About This Book

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This remarkable second collection by Digges ( Vesper Sparrows ) addresses with intelligence and tenderness the complex nature of love. Calling on fertile natural imagery, the poet advances an elegiac realism--one that combines both passion's desolation and its hopes. Yet the poems also reveal her rigorous analytical impulse, pressing to explore the thought that lies behind feeling. Considering the propensity to lose oneself in new love in ``Circadian Rhythms,'' Digges asks, ``But isn't it instinct's greatest vision / to extend what's possible, / to risk not coming back, / the way light, bending in water, disappearing, / wakes all the colors of earth?'' She seeks to transcend the ordinary, yet without forfeiting a life in the world, and renders the quotidian with affection and faithfulness (in ``The Rockettes,'' the speaker remembers her mother singing ``to the cancan over our wild hurrahs''). By observing howpk suffering enriches, Digges's sharp eye captures the paradoxes of existence. (Nov.)
Library Journal
In this, her second collection, Digges writes about ``gene-remembering,'' the layering of experiences. Her subjects are varied: a friend dying from AIDS, forest fires, TV evangelists, a psychic in a laundromat. To each she brings some philosophical insight: ``I think our lives hold many futures/ each one as random, as intended.'' Occasionally, Digges's rhythm fails, and some of her line breaks just don't work, but in their grasping for an understanding of life these poems become like ``a fist of fire opening/ mid-air plummeting.''-- Doris Lynch, Oakland P.L. Cal.
