Read in May, 2012

Louise Gluck imagines a village and makes it come alive. It's not primarily a happy place, but one filled with dark shadows and menace. Fires burn, bodies age. But poem after poem, the village comes to life. The language is simple yet deceptively powerful. A book poets and non-poets can relish.
