Most Helpful Customer Reviews

By A Customer on June 27, 2003
Format: Paperback
One of the most beautiful works of poetry I have ever read. I'd start with the word "haunting" to describe it, but that's starting to become cliche with Ms. Emerson's work, as it seems to strike a chord of memory about places and people that her readers have not known before. "A Bird in the House" and "Admirer" were particularly stirring for me, perhaps because I had the fortune to be able to hear Ms. Emerson read those poems before the book was published. She is a gifted writer and teacher, and I look forward to reading the next set of poems she writes.

...until now. GORGEOUS, compelling...the story of the poems pulls you in..each poem itself pulls you in....Claudia Emerson is a magnificent poet - beautiful, haunting, compelling. Intelligent...I will search for her first book and eagerly await more.

Growing up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia; there were a lot of farms around me. The poems in Pinion put me in the moment(s) and engaged all of my senses.
