Blue Heron (Mountain West Poetry Series) by Elizabeth Robinson

By Elizabeth Robinson

The poems in Blue Heron delineate a passage via grief and alter. the following, own loss is continuing with threats to different species and landscapes. In reaction, Robinson has uprooted the terrain of language, “what / bestows itself from / the almost-invisible / and its stain.” If those uprootings are casualties of a poetics trying to redress imbalance and “pollution,” then also they are possibilities to reconsider what can exist within the box of poetic language as “roots additionally quicken, bruise their plural pronouns, lose track, / forsake terrain by way of relocating via and on it.” And so Blue Heron hyperlinks poetic strategy with natural technique, presence with the space we all know as hauntedness. The web page isn't just a resonant actual box, but in addition a website of debate among human and panorama, among lack and manifestation. If those poems represent a poetics of loss, they're both a flow towards a poetics of openness, possibility, and renewed stability during which poetry shifts as “a type of climate, a form/of following, falling from the form/as it twists.”
