1997 Jane Kenyon Chapbook Award "These meticulously crafted poems unfold with a narrative drive and thematic unity worthy of a great novel. The spareness of Gilbert's language, along with her profound stoicism, gives her work a distinctly Dicksonian quality. This is a poetry of paralysis, of late nights crying in the dark, of pushing beyond memory to live again in the present. . . . An Ark of Sorts is a survivor's moving testament to the redemptive power of words."- Harvard Review "Gilbert knows the grief Jane Kenyon knew when she wrote, 'Sometimes when the wind is right it seems / that every word has been spoken to me.' An Ark of Sorts is a compelling diary of that grief, a record of the necessary and redemptive work of working through it-'The human work / of being greater than ourselves.'"- Bostonia "These poems, eloquent, quiet, painfully clear, rise from a profound willingness to face the irremediable. This is a beautiful book-this ark built to carry survivors through the flood waters of grief and loss-this ark of covenants between the living and the dead."-Richard McCann "These poems are transformed into literal necessities by the hand of a poet who writes from a time in her life when there was nothing but necessity. The poems themselves become indistinguishable from bread, wine, stone and staircase, and in this sense they are objects of force-contemplative issue-absolutely good."-Fanny Howe "Profound, moving poems of the hard coming-to-terms with death-this map of grief in the spare language of true poetry is an illumination of all sorrow."-Ruth Stone
