Triangulation from a Known Point signals the appearance of an important new voice in contemporary poetry. It is an exhilerating book, full of poems that blaze in memory long after the book is closed.
This book is Ruth Danon's first collection, though her poems have been widely published during the past decade in leading periodicals, such as The New England Review, The Boston Review, The Paris Review, and Tendril. As a poet, Danon brings to her work a remarkable force of intellignece, wit, and -- most importantly -- passion.

What People are Saying About This
Ruth Danon's poems are full of wonder and a quiet thoughtfulness. What is deepest about them is their clarity and their various tones of voice. They probe and unfold. The urgency of the poems is melodic, inviting.
Ruth Danon layers disparate voices -- from the impersonally oracular to the colloquially funny -- as if in three dimensions, and by their echoes we can place ourselves with surprising accuracy.
