About this title


Book by Fogel, Alice B.


Steven Cramer gets at the heart of Alice Fogel's writing when he distinguishes between poems that are careful and soft-spoken and poems that are meek. Fogel's writing is often the former, very rarely the latter. Fogel's work has been anthologized in the Best American Poetry series (1993), and it is her controlled tone and concentrated energy that account for much of her work's appeal. "Returns" is the strongest poem to my ear. Fogel describes the constant tension between motion and stillness in the world, the way earthquakes and volcanoes "have their roots at the stillest center" before they bloom, then notes: "And still you call a rock a rock / and mean unchanged."

"About this title" may belong to another edition of this title.
