"The rare formal ease and grace of the poems in The Audible and the Evident are as plain and gorgeously detailed as a snowscape in Iowa. Bristling with alert attention, Julie Hanson's poems witness and recover the world of things (and things felt), caught as they are in the contingencies of time."--Jennifer Atkinson, author of The Thinking Eye
"As Julie Hanson writes in the first poem in The Audible and the Evident, 'I tell you, real life is a pull and a lure / and a fling-back thing, a need / and a need and a slow-motion slide / through all sorts of partially identified / coming-right-at-you sudden matters.' Hanson's poems enact this pull and lure, this need, this shifting of gears. This poet's mind shines in the sentence-making, the line-breaking, and the tension between them. The Audible and the Evident not only gives pleasure but teaches the reader -- about poem-making and about living this 'real life.'"--Maggie Smith, author of Good Bones
"Hanson's poetics reflect a deep attention to balance, precision, and lucidity."--Annie Kim, DMQ Review
"Julie Hanson's poems in The Audible and the Evident are keenly attentive, subtle in their magic and mischief, and surprising in their candor and clarity. These poems place in our hearts the 'contagion of curiosity, ' and make of the ordinary the extraordinary, an intricate and wondrous realm where 'possibility is constant.'"--Eric Pankey, author of Crow-Work: Poems
