Poetry. "Like his exemplar, Edward Weston, Smallfield uses 'no aperture except his lens' to deliver 'bodies without body' and truths that are sensual, difficult and powerful in their claims on the reader. These are poems of thrilling uneasiness and probing reward"—Kathleen Fraser. "though the poet attests, 'I was lost/ and have been/ lost/ ever since,' these poems are firmly grounded in a generosity of impulse and meaning which orient the reader to the poetic journey undertaken. At the end of that wandering, Edward Smallfield shows us the habitation of the poem: for all the foreignness it can encompass, the reader comes upon this site as its door ist ajar. Entering, one feels uncannily at home"—Elizabeth Robinson.
