Lisa Barnett’s lucid, witty, and joyfully lewd sonnets electrify Love Recidivus, her debut chapbook. These passionate poems are full of 21st-century romance, love, marriage, and divorce, with just a whiff of the classic perfume of 16th-century poets speaking to their amours. Ruefully wry, smartly accomplished, Lisa Barnett is a poet who uses her stunning craft not only to display the loves of figures from Persephone to Scheherazade but to mirror the bewildering attachments of our own.
