Abstract:

In this book, poems about motherhood and domesticity mingle with poems about love and nature, most of them formal, all of them crystalline and full of an odd, bumpy vernacular sense of voice. Whimsical and urgent in turn, the style is the subject in Granite Dives, and indeed one hears echoes of Stevens, but also A.R. Ammons whose nuanced syntactical tightrope-walking Rabb has somehow managed to appropriate without imitating. --New Issues Press. These are poems of high intelligence and formal beauty. Never straining for effect, they pour forth their music in a crystal stream. --Carolyn Kizer.
