About the Author

CYNTHIA HOGUE has published seven collections of poetry, most recently, The Incognito Body (2006), Or Consequence (2010), and the co-authored When the Water Came: Evacuees of Hurricane Katrina (interview-poems with photographs by Rebecca Ross ), also published in 2010. Among her honors are a Fulbright Fellowship, a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship in poetry, the H.D. Fellowship at the Beinecke Library at Yale University, an Arizona Commission on the Arts Project Grant, and the Witter Bynner Translation Residency Fellowship at the Santa Fe Art Institute.


." . . Hogue's touchstones are Emily Dickinson, HD, and Marianne Moore, and she pushes her innovative moves farther. Her hallmark as a poet is longing, for human connection, for what we might call wholeness. The dominant theme in Flux, expressed in every element (animal, mineral, vegetable) is the difficulty of communication. Every ground is unstable, every meaning is slippery, and every kind of knowledge refracts into mystery--yet we seek, search, quest, the human essence being to try. The underlying sadness of this is palpable. Hogue's touch is gentle, thoughtful, probing, like a good physician's. . . . Hogue's poems in Flux, her third book, are challenging intellectually, and on the visceral level, complex. She is one of the most interesting poets I know, not settling for one or the other, always pushing the language, kneading and shaping it like dough. This is a poet honest enough to enter the space 'between what you admit / and what you won't.' "--Pamela Petro "The Women's Review of Books"
