About the Author:

ELLEN BRYANT VOIGT has published five volumes of poetry—Claiming Kin (1976), The Forces of Plenty (1983, reissued 1995), The Lotus Flowers (1987), Two Trees (1992), and Kyrie (1995), a National Book Critics Circle Award Finalist. She has co-edited a collection of essays, Poets Teaching Poets: Self and the World (1996), and has published The Flexible Lyric (1999), a volume of craft essays. A recipient of National Endowment for the Arts, Guggenheim, and Lila Wallace fellowships, Voigt teaches in the low-residency MFA Program at Warren Wilson College.

From Library Journal:

This is Voigt's third collection, and it is excellent. Her main subject is the rural life of Vermont and her roots in Virginia; appropriately, she uses a plain-spoken manner: "My grandfather killed a mule with a hammer,/ or maybe with a plank, or a stick, maybe/ it was a horsethe story varied/in the telling." But the poems are also studded with such lovelinesses as "the hawk's great leisure/ over the field." This combination of plain surface and eloquent detail allows the poems to contain deep feeling unmarred by exaggeration of self-dramatizing hyperbole. Her landscapes and observation of nature, though exquisite, are never merely painterly; the dignity, simplicity, and clarity of her work inevitably make one think of Frost. At least one poem, "The Trust," should enter our literary heritage. Highly recommended. Frank Lepkowski, Oakland Univ. Lib., Rochester, Mich.
