About the Author

Lesle Lewis's books include Small Boat (winner of 2002 Iowa Poetry Prize) and Landscapes I & II (Alice James Books, 2006). Her poems have appeared in jubilat, The Massachusetts Review, Barrow Street, Sentence, Mississippi Review, American Letters & Commentary, Bateau, and many other journals. She lives in New Hampshire and teaches at Landmark College in Vermont.


"Lesle Lewis is alive with conflict. She wishes she were alive and not alive. Lucky for us readers, she is very alive. Scintillating with all her private and not so private mythologies, her poems beam down situations of utter contradiction both terrifying and calming. She sings the song of life in all its multitudinous guises. Finally, though, this is a book of joy, impossible to put down, impossible to deny."--James Tate

..".lie down too is a collection to leave slowly and return to often."--Gently Read Literature

..".there is a lot of wisdom in [lie down too], and it comes to you in waves. I mean this almost literally: As if standing on the border of land and water, at the border of sense and chaos, the spare images of this book roll toward you at a rate that is both overwhelming and measured."--Thom Dawkins, Weave Magazine

"[lie down too] is a coupling of familiar with new, of phrases almost remembered but twisted in mid air like a lasso, settling on the head of an unexpected animal. It's seriously fun."--Beth Kanell

..".lie down too is often intensely hilarious and thoughtful."--Stride Magazine

..".[Lewis] integrates isolated lines with each other by the clever, deft touch of an adept hand and heart."--The Keene Sentinel

"Few poets handle both syntax and sound as [Lewis] does, and few flirt so well both with, and against, common sense, with and against ordinary adult experience..."--Publishers Weekly
