C. K. Williams's finest work thus far, this group of poems is about the valiant attempt to make sense of a chaotic world, the secrets we keep from ourselves and each other, and the odd moments of clarity emerging from bewilderment. "Villanelle of the Suicide's Mother" is especially powerful as the constraint and repetition of the form inevitably fail to bend unfathomable events into sense. These are disturbing, searching poems written in an unforgettable voice. [via]
