Item description for Enter Invisible: Poems (Woodford Reserve Series in Kentucky Literature) by Catherine Wing...

"With Stevensian proliferations and Dickinsonian refractive speed, Enter Invisible puzzles without ruse, conveying a lightning-quick mind, always electric, fiercely inventive. The descriptive angularities, formal variance, and musical resources are sassy, tricky, and intriguing, full of razzle-dazzle and enormously beguiling, even as a tragic sense simmers within their marvelous contraptions. Catherine Wing is confident enough to entertain us and skilled enough to leave us haunted by what makes us laugh."-Dean Young

Catherine Wing grew up in Kentucky. She received her undergraduate degree from Brown University and, most recently, her MFA in poetry at the University of Washington in Seattle.

Reviews - What do customers think about Enter Invisible: Poems (Woodford Reserve Series in Kentucky Literature)?

Give Wing Time To Change Your Mind  Jun 17, 2007
Like Lady Prufrock, below, my first inclination was to dislike Enter Invisible. What I learned, though, is that this is a book that is buoyed by multiple readings. Many poems aren't written to be explicated, but rather to be experienced, and these are those kinds of poems. I also disagree with the assertion that these don't hold together as a book. It seems to me that many of the poems in Enter Invisible are carrying on a dialogue with one another, and that's part of the pleasure to be found here, too.

Poetry, along with the other arts, often asserts its hold on us long after we've left our first encounter with the thing. Enter Invisible has a disquieting way of taking up residence in the reader, and it's this residence-taking that constitutes Wing's claim to being one of our most promising new poets. I am eagerly awaiting her next volume.
exasperating rather than inventive  Mar 7, 2007
Unlike Dean Young, who blurbs this book with enthusiasm, Catherine Wing's brand of manic wordplay and surreal humor doesn't, by and large, succeed. Although capable of satisfying cleverness and deep imginative leaping, Wing's poetry is ultimately frustrating. Regardless of where one falls on the spectrum of experimental versus traditional poetry, Wing's incoherence is amplified by the large dose of her that a book-length project offers. Read Wing in small doses; seek out her work in magazines. Skip the book.
