Reviews

Potent and mysterious. . . . [Lee] pivots confidently among registers, speakers, and languages. . . . Countless gorgeous details provide, in poem after poem, distinct delights.--Dan Chiasson
Few poets write like Li-Young Lee these days, facing the biggest and broadest questions head on. . . . Fewer still ask these questions so well, and so movingly. . . . Utterly true poetry.--Craig Morgan Teicher
Immediate, sensual, unrelentingly intense.
Erotic. . . . Throughout this multilayered book, [Lee] challenges readers to think and feel more deeply.--Elizabeth Lund
[Lee] presents breath-catching metaphysical equations in incantatory cadences that swing between earth and sky, flesh and holiness. . . . [An] exquisite, enthralling, and ringing call to wind, trees, sea, the beloved, and love, both human and sacred.
The poems emerge with their simplicity and complexity intact. In a word, they are heartfelt, without condescension. It's the triumph of sincerity over authenticity. . . . Lee's elegance transports us into the aspirations of yearning.
A heart-rending collection of poems that tackle love and violence with equal curiosity.
