Reviews

"The poems in Beth Bachman's Cease--not quite lyric, not quite prose--read more like urgently wired messages. Sometimes, her words splash forward like water from a pitcher. Sometimes, they erupt like fire from a drum. The disasters of war may be infinite, but fortunately God gave us the desire for touch to redeem ourselves. Along with beauteous animals and the earth. Beth Bachmann has written a scarily original, apocalyptic book about a time when it appears it is necessary to destroy and kill for peace."--Henri Cole
