Elizabeth Knies


"Everything is observed here—the fact of love, its absence, geography, the lives of friends. The changing seasons of solitude are observed too with fine attention. Elizabeth Knies writes with lyrical poise and transparency. In some of the finest poems in the book she approaches the brace and effortless clarity we associate with the ancient Chinese poets. These are generous poems, the eye prized always on the immediate and therefore on what is genuine—and always searching."
