Poetry. THE OPEN SECRET is a recipe for paradox and mystery. At once formal, candid, and familiar, Jennifer Moxley invokes a common if inchoate sense of shared experience, the very passing of time, with its unforeseen effects on both love and creative life. In doing so, she asks us to consider the cost of long-held devotions and commitments, as well as our relationship to the larger whole.
Jennifer Moxley is a poet, essayist, and translator. She lives in Maine with her husband Steve Evans.
