"Her newest book, Then, Something (Tupelo, 2009), turns away somewhat from the narrative bent of the poet’s earlier work and moves more toward lyric poems of the spirit: meditations, pastorals, mosaics, landscapes, questions & propositions, dreams, variations, and, at the end, a coda. The book begins with one of the most moving poems of both personal and universal significance to be found in any poetry collection: “wherever you are going,” the title letting us know the poem’s theme. The poet’s skill, her tenderness, the sheer beauty of these poems, make even the erasure they point toward seem filled with light and something to be awaited with joy as she explores boundaries between the real and the imaginary. Highly recommended. -- Jennifer MacPherson on the Comstock Review.
