Lynne Knight is a consummate lyric poet. Her themes in Again are the big ones, time, love, longing. Exquisite, haunted, these poems search out a balance between beauty and despair; they reach that form, that vantage where we can see a "sudden joy / in sweet mortality" .... —Richard Silberg
"The world fills with such wonders," Lynne Knight exclaims, and her fourth book, Again, amplifies that promise. Her poems are luminous and musical, whether she is writing of a family fleeing its home, a drowning, the light of memory, a painting, or the trials of love. She plumbs the depths of grief and joy, and this reader is with her all the way.—Grace Schulman
What is instantly remarkable in Again is the exquisite clarity of its imagery and its profound, fervent tone. And what I love about Lynne Knight's poems is that they feel and sound exactly true. Hers is a voice one immediately trusts. It is sensuous, attentive, intelligent, and ruthlessly honest as she interrogates the tangled relationship between what is said or kept secret, loved or feared, lit or kept in shadows—a chiaroscuro that her poems relentlessly explore. "Suddenly, knowledge comes, unstoppable as water" says Knight, and in response I ll quote another one of her wonderful lines: "How beautiful it is . . . and will be when you look again." —Laure-Anne Bosselaar
