Editorial Reviews

Review

"When Robert Graves wrote 'Nothing promised that is not performed' he was in the thrall of the White Goddess. This poet, whose goddess/muse is an intriguingly contemporary Persephone, composes and performs such works as 'The Gift,' 'Hades,' 'After Hysterics,' and the title poem with the luxurious patience only a marvelously ripened spirit can achieve; that attentive languor and the spell of authenticity it begins instantly to cast, manage to be intoxicating and sobering in the same draught. An impassioned elixir, deeply alluring, strongly recommended. And, yes, here in Suddenly, Fruit all promises are kept." --William Pitt Root, 2005 Carolina Wren Poetry Contest Judge

"The poems of Suddenly, Fruit are indeed ripe-ripe with sensuality, with language that is palpable. As if an old rift had been healed, dream, myth, flesh, spirit, history and consciousness are reunited and shown to be inseparable. Whether it's cooking dinner to NPR or watching a child's Christmas pageant, Linda Pennisi has a remarkable ability to see the mythic structures underpinning ordinary experience. And just as remarkably she hears how the ancient myths continue to speak. Her Persephone in modern dress reveals the dark currents tugging at our lives and shows us how experience, the dark and light of it, can-indeed, must-be embraced. These poems are womanly, wise, elegant, and profoundly generous in their affirmation of life, 'as if you had all along been praying for just this.'" --Betsy Sholl, Advance Reader
