Reviews

"Although Gluck is still in the middle of her career, it's clear that she is one of those poets-like Yeats, for example, and unlike Stevens--whose writing is provoked by their unfolding temporal life .... For more than a decade, Gluck has been writing books of poems that are meant to be encountered like novels, and has been looking into the difficult problem of finding a structure whereby an essentially lyric gift can be adapted to epic and unifying ambitions. "Meadowlands" gives us her most elaborate and satisfying solution."-- "The New Yorker""[Gluck's] most ambitious and compelling book. "Meadowlands" suggests that its much-honored author is not willing to take her own achievement for granted, and the result is a poetry more stringently dissatisfied and beautiful than ever before."-- "The Yale Review"
