Review

Candid, intimate, brimming with impressively keen and sensuous description, Rachel Eliza Griffiths Miracle Arrhythmia raises autobiography and personal odyssey to the level of myth an inspiriting music. An arresting debut by a passionate, hard-at-work new poet. --Cyrus Cassells

Possessed by the eyes of life and death, the poems of Rachel Eliza Griffiths are intimate with the earth and its realms of loss and rain, peonies and devastation. . .and light. Eerily exact in her craft, her powers of story and image both hammer and resuscitate the heart. Many-eyed. Many-brained. We have found, in her, an Orpheus willing to walk through the terrains of devastation and grief to sing to what has ears, still reviving what others might have deemed unsalvageable. A tremendous and difficult task, one senses that Griffiths loves the world so much that she writes towards all its rooms and parts boldly naming what is there. For this and for her many eyes, I trust this poet immensely. --Aracelis Girmay
