About this title

Synopsis:

The rich, lyrical poetry of Rene Gregorios second collection echoes the impassioned tradition of Mirabai, Yosano Akiko, and Anne Sexton. Gregorio is comfortable with a wide range of poetic possibility, working with traditional forms such as haiku, tanka, ghazal, and villanelle as well as with the prose poem and experimentations with lyric poetry. Her subject matter is equally diverse, encompassing the actual and philosophical other, social doubt, love, the natural world, death, the Japanese martial art Aikido, and a sense of the deep significance of place, whether that place is the Southwest, London, a barrio, a mountain village, or simply the sense that one can achieve ones own center, no matter where.

Review:

"It is clear that Gregorio loves language--not just its meanings but its texture. . . . she holds words in her mouth with an uncommon consciousness of their shapes and flavors." Gregorios strong, quiet voice and lithe rhythms . . . fill her words with intense, contained sensitivity.
