Poetry. Wholly original, Elizabeth Robinson's is an imagination of unusual resonance and indelible specificity. The pleasure in her poems is also their challenge, embracing a sense of play which in turn generates an extravagantly complex imagery through its willful deviance and layering. "In these deft, subtle poems meaningful associations arrange themselves. Like 'bones in a sand cliff'; like 'that bed whose middle is lowered by the body,' Robinson's impressions last"—C.D. Wright.
