This is an excerpt from my review in the fall issue of Journal of New Jersey Poets: Technically and in terms of craft, What Matters is a triumphant collection, matching a transcendent poetic sensibility with the small and large victories of the human spirit-its fears, its joys, its ability to persevere. As Stephen Dunn states, "In Adele Kenny's finely wrought meditations on grief and loss, she never forgets that she's a maker of poems; in other words, that the poem in its entirety is more important than any one of its utterances, phrasings, or laments." I would add to this that Kenny also never loses sight of the even larger whole: the poems together as a collection. Because of the careful attention to the smallest of details and the largest of structures, What Matters achieves the kind of overall cohesion that translates into complete, enthralled engagement at every level for the reader.
