In language softly burnished to a fine luster, Jane Wohl's poems transform the ordinary into moments of resonant beauty. Her keen eye misses no detailbe it the recording of a crushed robin's egg on the sidewalk, or the tag on a woman's skirt. These poems are filled with song and compelling narrative, and are an absolute pleasure to read. Wohl is an instructor at Sheridan College in Wyoming and in the Goddard College MFA in Writing program in Vermont.

Review:

"Beasts in Snow is the work of a poet who experience her world much like a worm--instead of using her eyes, Jane Wohl sees through her skin. Images exist because she has felt them--the weight of scallions in her hand is as significant as the weight of words on a page. The questions that this book raises--for example, 'how much does a skeleton of the hand change from person to person?'--made me slow my pace, contemplate neglected parts of my body, my world, in distinct and delicate ways." -- Elena Georgiou
