The poems in Kimberly Burwick s Horses in the Cathedral challenge the conventional esthetics of the poetic line in nuanced and subtle ways. Burwick s music yields great and unexpected beauty, insights garnered by long and patient scrutiny. More importantly, though, these poems surprise perception and offer the lover of books that rare gift a mysterious world we can return to again and again, with each visit our experience augmented. --Brian Turner, Judge, 2010 Robert Dana Prize for Poetry
It s not just that these vivid, sometimes anxious, sometimes faith-full, consistently gorgeous lyrics surprise us, but that we don t know how they will surprise next. Image? Deliciously archaic word choice? Sudden wit or disarming sincerity? These and more make this meditation in nature s church a compelling read, as the speaker seeks to evolve beyond mere survival, to see abundance and live with abandon, to see what the partridge sees and to answer the call to be a part of plenty. --April Ossmann
