Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This is Voigt's third collection, and it is excellent. Her main subject is the rural life of Vermont and her roots in Virginia; appropriately, she uses a plain-spoken manner: ``My grandfather killed a mule with a hammer,/ or maybe with a plank, or a stick, maybe/ it was a horsethe story varied/in the telling.'' But the poems are also studded with such lovelinesses as ``the hawk's great leisure/ over the field.'' This combination of plain surface and eloquent detail allows the poems to contain deep feeling unmarred by exaggeration of self-dramatizing hyperbole. Her landscapes and observation of nature, though exquisite, are never merely painterly; the dignity, simplicity, and clarity of her work inevitably make one think of Frost. At least one poem, ``The Trust,'' should enter our literary heritage. Highly recommended. Frank Lepkowski, Oakland Univ. Lib., Rochester, Mich.
