About this title
Book by Digges, DeborahFrom Library Journal:
A sense of time, proportion, a sure voice, characterize this book by a writer whose language guilelessly eases us into her transformations, her steady observations. "The afternoon went sunblind as an old grief." In thirty-four poems, five with birds at their centers, the ordinary and banal become the subjects of "actual" poetry and music. Digges sees beautynot arbitrarilyin the sparrows who ride "light's poor spine to earth, to touch down in gutters, . . . just outside Bellevue's walls." In other poems she celebrates human nesting and survival instincts with imagery of startling juxtapositions (of birds who steal anything to make their neststhe cut hair of sailors, the cleanings of hairbrushesand disappear into "trees above the sea"). A strong first book. Rosaly DeMaios Roffman, English Dept., Indiana Univ., Pa.
