Summary: Rachel Wetzsteon has been hailed by John Hollander as the writer of the "most impressive verse I have seen by anyone of her generation" and by Richard Howard as the "most variously gifted of our new poets." Variously compared to Emily Dickenson and Elizabeth Bishop, Wetzsteon displays her range of poetic voices and verse forms with an uncommon virtuosity. Her second collection features a musically resonant sonnet sequence, a poignant elegy for W. H. Auden, modern engagements with the world of myth, Narcissus, Pomona and others, and honest yet artful meditations, Home and Away is a brilliantly descriptive, skillful experimentation in verse.From the title poem, "Home and Away":and if a loving pair was what it tookto turn a cityscape from brown to bright,both pair and city gained from the exchange--it gave us history, we gave it life.Or so I figured.
