Poetry. Sheila Murphy is "one of the strongest, clearest, and most distinctive voices writing in English today"--John M. Bennett. CONCENTRICITY is a daring and distinctive book, yet its playfulness never fails to shine through. "Sheila Murphy's poetry operates in mercurial registers that demonstrate an aliveness to risk and experimentation.Murphy is argus-eyed, and her invigilation invokes a kind of spiritual exercise. She performs her poetic work as a meditative attention to the "tone complexion" of her language, which emerges in a "promenade of images" that open and transform in front of us. Sheila Murphy balances her quiet attention to the music of language with a sharp observation of the social text"--John Tritica.
