Editorial Reviews

Review

“[Correspondence is] as intelligent as it is moving, as emotionally astute as it is linguistically mesmerizing...”—Sima Rabinowitz, Dragonfire

“In these poems, it's the way in which correspondences slip and fail to correspond that generates the beauty and deeply felt intelligence of the whole: "I want it all. Every broken brick: / if not the fruit, the flower, if not this, the rind, whatever it is / that's left over." Here it is the struggle with incongruity that binds each assemblage together.”—Boston Review

Review

“Correspondence is a book which honors its epigraphs. Quoting Walter Benjamin, Kathleen Graber makes clear that she "takes up the struggle against dispersion." This is a poetry of meditative embrace, which both repairs and celebrates the often chaotic nature of life. Her long lines and slow cadences lend a devotional feel to poems in which the hidden and forgotten are returned to the lyric realm of consciousness. She would hold everything and clarify everything she holds. There is a mending quality to Graber's imagination, a mending of self by extension into the world. This is a wonderful book.” (Bob Hicok)

It is hard for me to pick a favorite poem from this excellent book. I have read through each several times over and the consistency is what keeps me coming back. Great job!

Format: Paperback
Intelligent, moving, poems that bring together disparate lines of thinking

to create a poetry that feels alive, compelling and conscious. A very strong collection.
