Shelves: poetry
The first time we read a poet we are enamoured, both of their work and of our discovery. Having discovered her, Ms. Rogers (who is an intelligent and demanding poet) expects readers to dwell in a natural world of intellectual transcendance and suspend their sentimentality and ignorance. She is in that long tradition of religious/mystic writers who are extravagent, yet formally precise.
