"Full of vibrant color and
details of nature closely
observed, attuned to
questions of perception, proximity, and scale, their sensibility is permeable, mutable. Reflections implode, the material takes on immateriality, substance is seen as transient.
"No poet better expresses the way in which our physical, literal position in the world changes our perception of the world. The lens for this knowing is at once compassionate and unremitting, vibrating with mind and feeling, a vision so profound and riddling, I was reminded, at times, of Dickinson. There are exquisite love poems and elegies that make solitary grief less solitary: poems that console because their vision is accurate and true—proportionate to misery as well as joy.
"Laura Glenn's intensely visual poems encounter the deepest subjects—memory, perception, time, loss—with sensitivity and wisdom.
I Can't Say I'm Lost
by Laura Glenn

"There's also wit and humor, as in the deliciously playful 'Dressing Up as Keats's "To Autumn,"' and acknowledgment of the distractions that interrupt experience. Laura Glenn is engaged with all it means to be alive—right now, right here—and this quality of attention gives her poems a thrilling depth. I was both impressed and enthralled by work so equal to life's unsettlements and bliss."
When the Ice Melts
by Laura Glenn
Published by Finishing Line Press
"Laura Glenn’s poems reveal a sense of strength in striking language, with aspects of nature providing steady reassurance: 'Down the lake / of time, the reflections appear / in sequence—staggered—and stagnant / for the moment, like the gone.'
"Each poem in her brilliant new collection When the Ice Melts is executed deftly—sometimes somberly, sometimes with subtle humor—but always intriguing."
