Editorial Reviews

Review

What a splendid lamination of paradoxes Margot Schilpp brings to The World's Last Night. She means to include everything, to sacrifice neither temperament nor resolve, neither craft nor wildness. She is a poet of supreme lyrical delicacy, yet the bold is her mainstay. Such fusion in a lesser poet might seem merely ambitious, but for Schilpp, it is a signature of character. She is one of the finest young poets writing today.

--Rodney Jones

The abiding interest of these poems are memory and the difficulty of making a self. I read this book as an emotional narrative, the details of the poet's life less important than the spirit in which they are rendered. It's Schilpp's lyrical imagination that I'm most drawn to here: I can feel her, in poem after poem, creating a reality that is shaped most of all by beauty. The poems succeed because they show her struggling to redeem her past. It's a testament to her ability as a poet that I know myself better having read this book. These are beautiful, quietly powerful poems.
