Address by Willis, Elizabeth

By Willis, Elizabeth

Tackle attracts us into obvious and invisible architectures, into acts of intimate and public handle. those poems are focused, polyvocal, and sharply aware of acts of illustration; they take individually their politics and within the technique show whatever concerning the manner civic constructions inhabit the mind's eye. toxic vegetation, witches, anthems, bees—beneath their floor, we glimpse the fragility of our founding, republican aspirations and witness a disintegrating panorama artfully reworked. If a poem can function a type of astrolabe, measuring distances either cosmic and quick, temporal and actual, it does so via creative, nonlinear ability. right here, prior and current interact in acts of mutual interrogation and critique, and inside of this dynamic Willis’s poetry is right away complexly authoritative and looking: “so starts our legislation.”
