Poetry. "'Wholehearted' is an undervalued word; to my mind it means not blind enthusiasm or unthinking embrace but something more like the full consent of the self to experience, to be present in the glorious and wounding matrix of the here and now. I can't think of a better word for Marie-Elizabeth Mali's poems. She wants 'the honeyed sizzle beyond all language,' wants to be a vulnerable and conscious participant in the life of things as they are, awake to love and the struggle to live freely and compassionately. 'How to hold the ocean,' she asks, 'when the vessel leaks? Rise your wild, / dear animal...'"—Mark Doty.

Review:

Marie-Elizabeth Mali wants "the honeyed sizzle beyond all language," wants to be a vulnerable and conscious participant in the life of things as they are, awake to love and the struggle to live freely and compassionately. "How to hold the ocean," she asks, "when the vessel leaks? Rise your wild, / dear animal ..." --Mark Doty

Attuned to the sensual and the sacred, Marie-Elizabeth Mali is engaged in "the pursuit of some ground to call home." A restless traveler of the landscapes of self and the self s origins, Mali is always a seeker reminding us to "Praise this beautiful, terrible world where we are opened / and crushed." --Kim Addonizio

Steady, My Gaze is a book we can open anywhere go ahead, do it now and discover how young poetry still is, how much still remains to be savored. You ll want to read it more than once. "Forgetfulness is ecstasy s cousin." --Brendan Constantine
