Editorial Reviews


...Much here feels honest, gracefully shaped, and true to human emotional complexity. (Antioch Review)

Into These Knots is a remarkable book, even more remarkable because it is Ashley Anna McHugh's first full-length volume. It should put to rest any lingering question of whether formal poetry is adequate to express contemporary thought and emotion. (World Literature Today)

You will not read it once. You will need to study this one to wring out all the meaning. Excellent poet.
