Library Journal - Library Journal
Griffin, whose prose examines contemporary culture, uses poetry to probe such issues as womanhoodwoman as mother, as daughter, as sister, and even, in one poem, as man; the politics of humankind; death; love; and metamorphosis. Griffin's voice is gentle but persistent, spare but compassionate. Spanning a decade, this collection demonstrates her growth as a poet. The earlier poems are occasionally cumbersome, dramatic, and needlessly difficult syntactically. The later poems, especially ``I Wake Myself Thinking as a Man,'' ``Nature,'' and ``Torture,'' explore life beyond the limitations of self and individual experience in rhythm that is more natural, resonant. For larger collections. Taryn Schaeneman, English Dept., Kingsborough Community Coll., Brooklyn, N.Y.
