... is diametrically opposed to many a male aspiration. Nonetheless, as I recently wrote in my review of Thrall: Poems, I have been trying to remediate at least one other character flaw by reading more poetry. Thus, when Elizabeth Jacobson drove down from her home in nearby Santa Fe to give a poetry reading in an independent Albuquerque bookstore, I decided to attend. No surprise, I suppose, that attendance was somewhat south of the crowd that gathers for a local Triple A baseball game. A discourse on correcting national character flaws, however, as they used to say in college, and probably still do, is beyond the scope of this review.

For poetry to resonate with me I have to eschew the "theory" and the "iambic pentameter," and such, and concentrate on two qualities: the conciseness and the validity of thought, and the yet still unique ways that words can be placed together to convey that thought. On both counts, in both Jacobson's reading, and in this volume, which I subsequently purchased, she scored "five's." I must have the requisite 15 or so books of photography on New Mexico. Until I purchased this volume, I had no books of poetry that describe the wonderful landscape that we fortunately inhabit and some others simply desire to visit. I've been walking past cholla for almost ten years now, saw their blooms, but never really did see them, since I never thought to describe their color: "fuchsia." (Or, maybe that is because I don't actually live in Santa Fe!) Are delphinium thirsty all day?

With my own knees pulled in and a cup of tea, I had intended to read a few pages of poetry to end my day....
I absolutely could not put this book down. It has an intimately wise momentum that I long for in poetry.
Elizabeth's voice is honestly EXQUISITE...dreamy and sobering!
(I've read it five times)

By David M. Kaufman on December 30, 2012
Reading these poems gives the reader a clear insight into a specific time and place - the vastness and unique spirituality of rural New Mexico. Elizabeth Jacobson's poems are sensual, mysterious, and far reaching into the inner workings of a woman and the natural world which holds her. A homage to our planet, and to New Mexico, Her Knees Pulled In takes the reader on an unmatched poetic journey.
