Poetry. "These are poems that sparkle, and their inventive, adventurous spirit makes them an adventure also for the reader. All of them are full of a truthful, warm humanity; all are completely free of affectation and pomposity. They're full of mystery and curiosity. Unpredictable details, and insights you could never find for yourself, are set side by side in such a way that one brings out the brilliance of the other. The effect of this is constantly surprising. There are other poems which tell their story more plainly. But you have to read them all. Each poem is quite different from the others, in such a way that together they form a whole"—Anne Porter.
