Praise

Praise for Joanna Klink:

“In a culture inclined to mistake opacity for depth and stridency for passionate feeling, Joanna Klink has made a body of work at once utterly lucid and breathtakingly urgent. She navigates between those most suspicious extremes, despair and ecstasy, without ever seeming to be a poet dependent on extremes.  Taken together, her books are an amazing experience: harrowing, ravishing, essential, unstoppable.” —Louise Glück, American Academy of Arts and Letters Award citation

“[Klink’s] poems illuminate the membrane between loneliness and solitude.” —Terrance Hayes, author of American Sonnets for My Past and Future Assassin

“Klink writes love poems to nature . . . Walt Whitman might find something to envy in the way Klink’s more gentle sense of song tumbles out of simple, individual acts of attention.” —Chicago Tribune

“[Klink’s] work is a record not only of the ecstasy of engagement with the natural world, but also of the mixed and passionately felt consequences of detachment from a noisier, more chaotic world.”Boston Review
