Our Classical Heritage reviewed in Word For/Word
Just a taste of what Andy Frazee has to say about Caroline Noble Whitbeck's Our Classical Heritage: A Homing Device over at Word For/Word:
"Behind this poet's disrupted syntax and extrapolated grammar is a very human voice which seeks, with uncommon generosity, to 'keep company.' And this may be what, in the end, Our Classical Heritage does best: it finds a home within the kinetic dis-locations of language that typify early 21 st century poetics, and then embodies that place in the text[.]"
