Poetry. Rarely is a debut collection described as fearless, the real deal, showing voracious intelligence--especially when the poet has reached 80 years. Florence Fogelin's lyric poetry, informed by a nomad's telescope, focuses on desire and mortality, marriage and place. Like stone masons chipping at perplexity, she crafts a journey--from Vermont to Sicily, from tearing down a boathouse to talking with Sappho on a NYC subway--finding the eternal hope seen in every graveyard while doubting the existence of guardrails.
What Florence Fogelin is doing is vital: playful, psychologically insightful, and startlingly precise. Fogelin is the real deal; she delights in the worlds we're given. -David Sullivan
