Reviews

"Endi Bogue Hartiganas poems are enveloping: one is immersed in experiences of ice drifts, orange
peels, and the striving toward a clarity (Let us be clear, one poem reiterates) that crystallizes and
then evaporates. Subjects and objects are beautifully combined and confused through repetitions
both musical and mysterious; each separate thing helps to form the existence of another. A reader
is drawn into a process of thinkingaa kind of sifting and sortingaambitious for the large world
that is always beyond oneas grasp. One Sun Storm is not a mere collection, but a total project in
which each poem is part of the whole. The passing by of the pieces of this created world engenders
gratitude and awe."

a Martha Ronk, final judge and author of Vertigo, In a Landscape of Having to Repeat, and Why/Why Not


"Here is a vision of, a vision in, rather than a vision beyond the world, a poetry whose accuracy is
humbly undercut by the recognition that the world is always larger than the poem. Here is a poetry
whose faith is in something not merely itself. The world is experiential before it is textual. In between those two points, Hartiganas poems do their work, ensuring that what has been seen once, in its
singular wonder, remains to be seen again. The page pushes its root down into the world, into the
fact of the world, the fact that the world isaand that fact has a sheen, has a music. Hartigan hears
that music. She hears it, and she lets the facts sing their terrestrial song."

."..these poems are intricate and phrenic: to do, at once, with the mind and the heart. They deservedly won the Colorado Prize for Poetry in 2008."

.".. it finds revelation at the moment of becoming, which occurs and then, just as suddenly, is gone, replaced by another becoming. Hartigan's poems, particularly the sequences, are recombinant organisms, becoming and becoming again, like double helixes evolving into eyes and ears and skin."

"
"More interested in the generative possibilities of questions than in their answers, the well-crafted, rangy free-verse lyrics of Hartigan's Colorado Prize-winning debut obliquely interrogate humanity's relationships with larger forces, both natural and man-made, as well as notions of love and motherhood... Hartigan distinguishes herself from her peers she shares with many young poets a hip penchant for fragmentation and elliptical imagery with her careful eye ('Wood chips/ burning/ by the pharmacy'), her ear for the ways soft and sharp sounds make music together ('one leaf from among/ the accumulate of leaves'), and her earnest search for 'One voice rising and falling in one chorus.'"
