Poetry General
Anne Simpson explores the power, and the anguish, of many different modes of return - retrieval, revision, the covering of old ground with eyes wider and thoughts reconditioned by difficult wisdom. These poems occur at that place where a focused, compassionate vision comes to inhabit language and to find the forms that will suffice: a Mobius strip poem that loops back on itself; a crown of sonnets that take us back to the shock and grief of the twin towers and find deep resonance with paintings by Brueghel; a set of quick improvisations like the motion studies done for a drawing class. Simpson's work shows us, again and again, the insight and excitement that come from the practice of a necessary craft in the service of a committed vision.
