Following her debut collection,Cusp, chosen by Yusef Komunyakaa to win the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference Bakeless Prize, the poetic quality of Jennifer Grotz'sThe Needlewill remind readers of the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop and Ellen Bryant Voigt. Whether she is describing a town square in Krakow, where many of these poems are set, the ponies of Ocracoke Island, a boy playing a violin, or clouds, she finds the lyrical details that release what Zibgniew Herbert called "royal silence," an atmosphere of heightened, transcendent attention in which the things of the world become the World.
