Sharon Olds writes the most brilliant, visceral poetry, each word biting into the page. Arias is her strongest collection yet. Her well-crafted sentences beg to be read aloud. And so I do. While walking the length of my hardwood floor, book held aloft, I sing out the words, devouring and delivering each piece with the unflinching, unwavering passion of Old’s compelling voice.
