Summary

"Kasischke's intelligence is most apparent in her syntactic control and pace, the way she gauges just when to make free verse speed up, or stop short, or slow down."-- The New York Times Book Review "Kasischke's poems are powered by a skillful use of imagery and the subtle, ingenious way she turns a phrase."-- Austin American-Statesman Laura Kasischke's poems have the same haunting qualities and truth as our most potent memories and dreams. Through ghostly voices, fragmented narratives, overheard conversations, songs, and prayers in language reminiscent of medieval lyrics converted into contemporary idiom, the poems in Space, In Chainscreate a visceral strangeness true to its own music. So we found ourselves in an ancient place, the very air around us bound by chains. There was stagnant water in which lightning was reflected, like desperation in a dying eye. Like science. Like a dull rock plummeting through space, tossing off flowers and veils, like a bride. And also the subway. Speed under ground. And the way each body in the room appeared to be a jar of wasps and flies that day--but, enchanted, like frightened children's laughter. Laura Kasischkeis the author of thirteen books of poetry and fiction. Her novel Her Life Before Her Eyeswas adapted for the screen and starred Uma Thurman. A Guggenheim Fellow in 2009, she teaches in the MFA program at the University of Michigan.
