DescriptionPoetry. "Lisa Williams's new collection, GAZELLE IN THE HOUSE, is truly a book of stanzas: poetic rooms in which to dwell. Some of these dwellings have the uncanny familiarity of ordinary domestic space and others are as mysterious and disorienting as the depths of the sea. Painting with colors at times opaque, at times transparent, moving between shallows, tide-pools, and the abysses of dreams, Williams's voice is solitary, meditative, intimate and in the end a means of revelation." Susan Stewart"
