Author(s): Lucy (EDT) Tim (EDT); Dougan Fay; Dolin Zwicky

Poetry, Plays and Short Stories

Zwicky is one of the world's finest poets; her sophistications of form and theme remind one of Akhmatova, Szymborska, Adrienne Rich and William Blake. With poise and control, she tracks the personal encounter with the weight of history and the obligation to declare a position. - JOHN KINSELLA In her poetry, Zwicky, the ex-concert pianist, technically adroit, dramatic and profoundly serious, is there alongside the joker, the edgy ironist making wry asides against the world, patriarchy and herself. Her formal poems sit easily beside her mostly short-lined, tightly wrought free verse. Her cadences are a delight. - KATHERINE GALLAGHER Zwicky's poems deal with such over-whelming intimations of mortality-and much more than intimations-while striving for and attaining a breathtaking authority and stubborn subjectivity of voice. - LYN MCCREDDEN She has her eye on all creation. - GEOFFREY DUTTON
