    Had been trying to get into Aase Berg's poetry for a while after having run into extremely positive endorsements from the poet SJ Fowler, and the poet-translators, Johannes Göransson and Joyelle McSweeney, but somehow never quite connected with the odd fragments found online. This short collection rectifies that. The essays serve as a perfect introduction to her work, functioning as a kind of unassuming on-the-hoof 'ars poetica', which at times remind me of the penetrating intensity of Rimbaud's Had been trying to get into Aase Berg's poetry for a while after having run into extremely positive endorsements from the poet SJ Fowler, and the poet-translators, Johannes Göransson and Joyelle McSweeney, but somehow never quite connected with the odd fragments found online. This short collection rectifies that. The essays serve as a perfect introduction to her work, functioning as a kind of unassuming on-the-hoof 'ars poetica', which at times remind me of the penetrating intensity of Rimbaud's letters to Paul Demeny, or, better, Sean Bonney's letters against the firmament. Somehow Berg avoids the eschewed romantic cliche of agonised poet and revolts against the humdrum 'epiphany at the bottom' formula poem, while being both down to earth and unquestionably romantic.

    Very interesting and encouraging collection of essays on poetry and aesthetics. My favorite essay was "A Cistern of Sorrow," which offers an interesting look at the experience of pregnancy, but all the the essays have something to offer. As a former writing teacher, I wish alternative poetics like this were more prominent in American classrooms. Even side by side, I think it'd be an enlightening look at the scope of possibilities/range of poetics. Very interesting and encouraging collection of essays on poetry and aesthetics.

    Incredible insight into a form of poetry as wound wreaking and wound supplicant; where the grief of a carved word is integral not into just how the poem heals but also how the poem heals irregularly. Slight concerns on the organization of this pamphlet (should it be as such?) might dampen the rating some, but the overwhelming power of a majority of these essays merits high recommendation.

    I really appreciated these essays, and think especially Berg's work speaking toward critics is immensely valuable. "Communication in poetry is about the path through one's own impossibility."
