Reviews

Her exquisite and brutal lyricism as well as her commitment to truth makes Trethewey one of the most important American poets of our time ... A tremendously empathic and enthusiastic force in our nation's bleak period. Her words settle with profound gravity * Paris Review * A glorious example of what results when one listens - and writes - brilliantly ... Her work is loved because she refuses to forget those who've been lost and the struggles of those who remain * Washington Post * Trethewey has an insistent intellect and a gift for turning over rich soil * New York Times * Impassioned but clear-eyed ... She is poised to build a powerful legacy ... We can look forward to the fresh direction that Trethewey's compass will, inevitably, point us * New Yorker * She reveals how keenly all of us are shaped by loss, and how much America, too, has been forged by the ever-present shard of grief * O Magazine * This is a black woman who has committed an entire life and career to holding a country accountable, despite the weight of her own grief * Buzzfeed * The wide scope of her interests and her adept handling of form have created an opus of classics both elegant and necessary -- Marilyn Nelson, 2016 Academy of American Poets Fellowship judge A marker in America's conversation on race and gender ... A must-read for people interested in where America has been, where it's headed, and how to traverse the crossroads of the country's literature while also perhaps saving their soul at the beginning of this turbulent century -- Tyehimba Jess, Poetry Foundation
