Poetry. "Baker avows that sight is visionary and that Vision is transformative. This is her 'massive simplicity,' a Blake-like virtue surely, in which the disruption of the eye by light, of words by breath (and by the breath-taking line breaks that are Andrea Baker's most beautiful signature) is a chaos becoming, quite simply, cosmic and wide"--Donald Revell, from his ...more
