1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Andrew Demcak on March 2, 2010
Format: Paperback
What I like best about Wahlgren's poetry in his satisfying collection, Valency, is watching each piece take shape. Like protons & neutrons collecting around a nucleus, the word shapes merge and form the most marvelous poems. I am also reminded of a quote from Julia Child about why she liked a good sandwich: because she knew the chef's fingers had been all over it. In Valency, whether it's in a common "...display of sky blue," or in the inventive "...sandbox of lies," the play of Wahlgren's mind is like those fingerprints, touching here and there with the elusive spark which is the life of poetry itself. A wonderful addition to American poetry.
