Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Elizabeth Arnold's high-tension lines cross a vast space--astronomical, historical and personal--a space expansive and annihilating, whether measured in light years, epochs, or by that vertigo felt when those close to us leave us out of what they see. These spare and unsparing lines, taut with a formidable restraint, vibrate to frequencies that her almost preternaturally acute perception allows us to share. --Eleanor Wilner

About the Author

Elizabeth Arnold has published three books of poems, The Reef (University of Chicago Press, 1999), and CIVILIZATION (Flood Editions, 2006), and EFFACEMENT (Flood Editions, 2010). Her poems have appeared in Conjunctions, Paris Review, Poetry, and Slate. She is on the MFA faculty at the University of Maryland and lives in Hyattsville, Maryland.
