Forfatteren benytter i denne samlingen det shakespearske blankverset og en rekke orientalske diktformer - i første rekke ghazal'en med sitt særegne mønster av rytme, rim og repetisjoner. En rekke dikt gjenspeiler forfatterens engasjement i internasjonale PEN og hennes personlige interesse og...
The Lighthouse Beckons.jpg
The Lighthouse Beckons is a book of broad-based, incisive, sometimes ethereal poems. The Lighthouse Beckons invites you to sample its various forms of light: the light that is apparent, the contrast of light and dark, or the luminescence of one's soul. I chose the the title The Lighthouse Beckons,...
Lost Transmissions
"In his sixth book of poems, Lost Transmissions (Serving House Books, Sept. 2012), David Memmott speaks to the need we have to explore the depths of our own psyches, a need so insistent that many of us would sell our souls to unearth the answers to what motivates our lives--what motivates our...

"Rarely have the nude and the cooked been so neatly joined” as in Amy King’s I Want to Make You Safe. If “us,” “herons,” and “dust” rhyme,  then these poems rhyme. If that makes you feel safe, it shouldn’t. Amy King’s poems are exuberant, strange, and a bit grotesque. They’re spring-loaded...
New Poets | Short Books Vol. V
Edited by Marvin Bell "The poets in this volume--Valentine Freeman, Robert Peake and Jensea Storie-like those in the first four volumes, deserve to be better known, but public promotion of the poets was never my primary aim. That would be a bonus, but only a bonus. Rather, I hoped the chance to...
Wheels Turning Inward
