Poetry. "Gretchen Mattox's Goodnight Architecture is a fine example of a collection that houses mind and heart harmoniously. She has read her Louise Gluck and learned from her without being derivative in the least: `it must have tasted like grief, the narrative flame. Nothing fit again, a miscalculation of weather.' Small words (`again') carry so much weight in these poems, working to add texture and emotional complexity. So important--the difference between `Nothing fit' and Nothing fit again' and Mattox knows this difference, feels it, lives it"--Martha Rhodes.
