Our Classical Heritage reviewed in Word For/Word

December 11, 2008

 Just a taste of what Andy Frazee has to say about Caroline Noble Whitbeck's Our Classical Heritage: A Homing Device over at Word For/Word:

"Behind this poet's disrupted syntax and extrapolated grammar is a very human voice which seeks, with uncommon generosity, to 'keep company.' And this may be what, in the end, Our Classical Heritage does best: it finds a home within the kinetic dis-locations of language that typify early 21st century poetics, and then embodies that place in the text[.]"

And while you're over there, check out the poems from one of Switchback's founding editors, Hanna Andrews!
