Reviews

Publishers Weekly"
"Everything in Hartigan s collection is weaving of questions which she insists that the reader ask him or herself, and she doesn t necessarily insist that an answer be arrived at. In the first poem in the book, Slippage and the Red Poppies she asserts We have to begin at the slippage of alertness into fear. And in that sense she is suggesting that we must be a little bit afraid of determining or ascertaining an incontrovertible meaning. We must be made slightly uncomfortable by endless possibilities before we can begin to discover them and accept the invitation to play, among the poppies and the slippage, where meanings are found, erased, revised, disintegrated, and elucidated once again not in their layering, but rather between the layers. Hartigan s collection is a must read, if not only for its portrayals of beauty, then for its success in satisfying the thirst of the intellect." Emily Vogel"

Divided into five choruses, the work is troubled by and troubles the notion of a chorus as the many and the one, a laboratory in which individual identity is obliterated and redefined....Individual moments are individual for having been chosen--lifted out of the noise--and Hartigan's poems make the claim that the act of choosing, no matter how choral the result, is of the greatest importance-- "Publishers Weekly" (1/1/2014 12:00:00 AM)
