The Second Reason: Poems
In her new collection of poems, The Second Reason, Jenny Browne emerges as a poet of tremendous depth and range. The poems here approach both the details of the domestic life and the strangeness of consciousness with equal attention. The work is musical, spiritual, and physical, the poet serving as an observant linguistic and sensual guide to all the things that matter: love, suffering, and pleasure with her precise and inventive lines. There is a surprising calm in the wild leaps this poetry makes, as if the poet is at home with the unpredictable and intent upon bringing us there with her. --Laura Kasischke
