Reviews

Hayden Saunier's Wheel contains much wisdom, much humor, many quiet reveries, lots of farm and house chores, much regret and gratitude. For all its constant motion, it's a tight collection governed by theme and voice, but also by powerful formal means, especially repeated music and imagery, marked out in something like sonata form. Wheel all but refuses to be read silently; readers may find themselves unknowingly slipping into recitation. This is the work of a poet at full throttle, full voice, persuading us to join her as she stands in a winter suit of hand-me-downs amid a storm of beauty, loss, and bright abundance, feet in rubber boots, wheeled round, firmly grounded in chastening, gladdening splendor.
