In Again, Lynne Knight's musical and compelling fourth full-length collection of poetry, her measured and lyrical voice reveals desire and memory as physical presences: spirits invoked by the spell of the poem so that the reader embodies her stories of the body of damage and breakage, recovery and repair. Whether autobiographical or ekphrastic, the poems are equally genuine, bringing image to life, like bright fruit constantly replenished. Following hunger and beauty to their extremes, the poems allow us to confront loss as well as grief, "which finally requires of us // acceptance but also tact / in the doing: breakage, yes, but not utter ruin."

About the Author:

Lynne Knight's previous collections are Dissolving Borders, The Book of Common Betrayal, and Night in the Shape of a Mirror, plus three award-winning chapbooks. Her cycle of poems on Impressionist winter paintings, Snow Effects, has been translated into French by Nicole Courtet. Knight's work has appeared in Best American Poetry 2000, and her awards include a Theodore Roethke Award from Poetry Northwest, a Lucille Medwick Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America, and a grant from the National Endowment of the Arts.

Review:


Lynne Knight is a consummate lyric poet. Her themes in Again are the big ones, time, love, longing. Exquisite, haunted, these poems search out a balance between beauty and despair; they reach that form, that vantage where we can see a "sudden joy / in sweet mortality" .... —Richard Silberg

Review
"The world fills with such wonders," Lynne Knight exclaims, and her fourth book, Again, amplifies that promise. Her poems are luminous and musical, whether she is writing of a family fleeing its home, a drowning, the light of memory, a painting, or the trials of love. She plumbs the depths of grief and joy, and this reader is with her all the way.—Grace Schulman

Review
What is instantly remarkable in Again is the exquisite clarity of its imagery and its profound, fervent tone. And what I love about Lynne Knight's poems is that they feel and sound exactly true. Hers is a voice one immediately trusts. It is sensuous, attentive, intelligent, and ruthlessly honest as she interrogates the tangled relationship between what is said or kept secret, loved or feared, lit or kept in shadows—a chiaroscuro that her poems relentlessly explore. "Suddenly, knowledge comes, unstoppable as water" says Knight, and in response I ll quote another one of her wonderful lines: "How beautiful it is . . . and will be when you look again." —Laure-Anne Bosselaar
