Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Using images that sometimes startle the reader, this 30-year-old poet reevaluates her own "land" through travel (London, Florence) and close observations. Agoos pays careful attention to a place's ghoststhe impressive lead poem traces in 10 stanzas the history of a farm through its inhabitants and the weather. She reveals an adept juggling of rhythms"delighted, self-invited, second-sighted" for end-rhymes; occasional brilliant reversals"Oh my darling, look: how life/ imitates art in the afternoon"; and a tuning of the senses, as in "shy grey as those feathers." There is a sure presence and considerable skill here, as one would expect from the latest winner of Yale's "Younger Poet" series. Rosaly DeMaios Roffman, English Dept., Indiana Univ . of Pennsylvania
