Poetry. "Taking her cues from folktale, legend, and fable, Elizabeth Robinson has reinvented the 'uses of enchantment.'" Robinson calibrates the motion between fear, apprehension, and knowledge-comprehension at the crux of human imagining. She shows, with a minimalist's precision and a logician's attention to linguistic morphology, how the often bleak agenda of the real capitulates to the moral restitution of the true; how our need to tell stories enjambs faith and enlightenment. This is a work of uncanny persuasion"—Ann Lauterbach.
