    One thought on “Deep Light”

    1. This is a good book of poetry, but as it spans a writing period of twenty years, sometimes you do have to sift through for the really stand out pieces And they are in there Some of McClanahan s work is beautiful and breathtaking Some of it, on the other hand, seems a bit like filler.One of the most innovative, and much commented upon, elements of this book is the way the poems are grouped together by theme as opposed to being presented chronologically Which works for the collection as a whole, [...]

    2. Rebecca McClanahan s book is simply gorgeous I actually found myself holding my breath as I read some of her pieces Ohat I could write like she does The poems in this collection are arranged in an incredibly interesting and fresh way neither chronology nor subject matter holds them together Instead, they flow from one to another like a single meditation on life, death, fidelity, aging, loneliness all the big topics of human existence a meditation that is real, down to earth, accessible and heart [...]

    3. This book is breathtaking Rebecca McClanahan writes with an intimacy of self that allows the reader to feel part of her poems and with the grace of an assured, accomplished poet She is one of those amazing poets whom I feel both poets and nonpoets will enjoy I keep her book nearby to pull out and reread poems or passages from poems.
