Following her debut collection, Cusp, chosen by Yusef Komunyakaa to win the Bread Loaf Writers Conference Bakeless Prize, the composed, observed quality of Jennifer Grotzs The Needle will remind readers of the poetry of Elizabeth Bishop and Ellen Bryant Voigt. Whether she is describing a town square in Krakw, where many of these poems are set, the ponies of Ocracoke Island, a boy playing a violin, or clouds, she finds the lyrical details that release an atmosphere of heightened, transcendent attention in which the things of the world become the World, what Zbigniew Herbert called royal silence.
