Review: Dietz, Perennial Fall
The Green Bay Press Gazette recently featured an article about Maggie Dietz. Jean Peerenboom interviewed Dietz and reviewed her new poetry book Perennial Fall. From the article: "They are poems that will make you stop, think and imagine."
At the heart of this unusually accomplished and affecting first book of poetry is the idea of the hinge—the point of connection, of openings and closings. Maggie Dietz situates herself in the liminal present, bringing together past and future, dream and waking, death and life. Formally exact, rigorous, and tough, these poems accept no easy answers or equations.
