That Blue Repair carries us backwards on the morning train, a phrase that describes both Landis's chronicling of the quotitian world and the way she presents the past in rapidly shifting scenes. Landis is an equally astute observer of the literary world, and the pleasures these poems afford stem in part from the way she interweaves life with reading.
2010 Honorable Mention: Eric Hoffer Award

Joan Hutton Landis graduated from Bennington College, worked in publishing and, after her marriage, lived in France, Saudi Arabia, and Lebanon. Returning to the U.S., she earned degrees from Wesleyan and Bryn Mawr. She taught literature and poetry workshops at The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, where she was Chair of the Liberal Arts Department. Her most recent poetry has appeared in Parnassus, The Gettysburg Review, Poetry and Salmagundi. She lives in Media, Pennsylvania, and spends summers in Granville, Vermont. This is her first book of poems.Review:
One of the many pleasures of this book is 'Sunday Lesson,' which its seemingly casual marshalling of impressions and its ever strongest intimations of mortality. I also relish the successful use of Emily Dickinson's tone and technique in 'Amherst: June 1873.' And 'Love Poem Poem with Grackles' is simply delightful. I could go on with specific phrases, but let me say of That Blue Repair as a whole that it is remarkable for wit, charm, and intelligence, and that its formal pleasures seem a natural accompaniment of those qualities. --Richard Wilbur
