Carolyn Raphael’s formal dexterity dazzles and her aphorisms sizzle in Dancing With Bare Feet. Jaunty meters anchor the poet’s sometimes witty, sometimes tender arguments. She mocks, parodies, and tugs the truths from art, music, parent-and-grown-child dilemmas, aging and more. Whether she stops the family car by the woods to tease Robert Frost or one-ups Browning with “My Next Duchess,” Carolyn Raphael aims to arm—wrestle the canon—and wins. Bravo for Dancing With Bare Feet.
