Bluesy, opinionated, sly, self-chastising and tender, Rhea Tregebov's All Souls'-her first collection since 2004-commands a range of tones wider and bolder than anything in her previous six books. Inspired by crises both personal [divorce, adult children, aging parents] and societal [global warming, financial implosion],All Souls' bracingly addresses the quandary at the heart of our present moment:the fear of change and the fear of standing still. Enriched by a sharp palate and crackling with confidence, Tregebov's new poems capture life in all its rueful aspects, and do so with a lyricism of considerable beauty and power.Signal Editions
