    One thought on “Hart Island”

    1. This is where it all coalesces for me the beautiful, earthy, immediate lyricism, the unflinching perceptivity. stacy's voice in "hart island", with its hinge lines and sparse punctuation, amounts to more than a verbal resurrection of the dead or an in memorium; this is tapping into the life force of a city, a place of continuous movement, where the site of supposed stillness breathes a colloquy.

    2. I'm a sucker for intensely enjambed verse, as well as elliptical and suggestive writing about everyday experience, and multi-sectioned long poems. And most of the imagery is drawn from NYC. So this book was pretty much up my alley.
