World, by Ana Luisa Amaral

Staff Pick

Whether she’s writing about birds, bugs, or the interconnectedness of every living being, Amaral's sparse, graceful poetry conveys the sheer joy of living--even melancholy touches on the happiness at its borders.  As she celebrates the minutiae of all life--plant, animal, and human--Amaral finds her place in a line that includes Tomas Transtromer and Wislawa Szymborska; another form of flying/ without wings/ at the very height of passion she says about a peacock--and about poetry.
