Here is a new voice accomplished both in mind and music. Jenny Factor is a poet who is not afraid to dare the extravagant gesture (the fifteen-sonnet heroic crown) or to focus on the minuscule event (a toddler playing trucks in the lamplight). And in either direction, she finds the unexpected, the as-yet-unsaid, the memorable: words and lines which will resonate in the reader’s mind after the book is shut, and before it’s picked up again, as it will be.
