Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Blackhawk, winner of the John Ciardi Prize, is on the lookout for moments in which the dusty scrim of everyday perceptions is swept aside just as someone out walking early on a summer morning will tear through a spider's web, or as reflections in standing water disclose the mirroring underworld, or the way the suddenly met stare of a bird holds you rapt. Language itself is as alive to Blackhawk as a field of high grass in the wind, and, reverent and playful, she writes appreciatively and knowledgeably not only of nature but also of art, including the "polymorphic" glass sculptures of Dale Chihuly and the cosmic topsy-turviness of Chagall. Without a shred of self-aggrandizement, Blackhawk fully occupies every scene, whether it's a room in which a loved one has died, an insect-thrumming forest, a dream, a rookery, a museum, or a poem by Emily Dickinson, and reports lucidly on the altered state each immersion sets in motion. Welcoming and transporting, Blackhawk's lustrous lyrics carry the grateful reader into hidden dimensions. Donna Seaman
