About the Author:

Ellen Bryant Voigt is the author of volumes of poetry, including Shadow of Heaven, a finalist for the National Book Award, and Messenger, a finalist for the National Book Award and for the Pulitzer Prize. Voigt was awarded the O. B. Hardison, Jr. Prize from the Folger Shakespeare Library, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Merrill Fellowship from the Academy of American Poets, where she was subsequently elected a chancellor. Her poems have appeared in an array of national journals and anthologies, including The Pushcart Prize and Best American Poetry. She lives in Vermont and teaches in the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College.

From Library Journal:

This is Voigt's third collection, and it is excellent. Her main subject is the rural life of Vermont and her roots in Virginia; appropriately, she uses a plain-spoken manner: "My grandfather killed a mule with a hammer,/ or maybe with a plank, or a stick, maybe/ it was a horsethe story varied/in the telling." But the poems are also studded with such lovelinesses as "the hawk's great leisure/ over the field." This combination of plain surface and eloquent detail allows the poems to contain deep feeling unmarred by exaggeration of self-dramatizing hyperbole. Her landscapes and observation of nature, though exquisite, are never merely painterly; the dignity, simplicity, and clarity of her work inevitably make one think of Frost. At least one poem, "The Trust," should enter our literary heritage. Highly recommended. Frank Lepkowski, Oakland Univ. Lib., Rochester, Mich.
