Muscular and Important Poetry  Mar 12, 2006
"Regarding History," The opening poem of Ingloria's Trill and Mordent, is stunning in its ability to evoke a moment--these early days of the 21st century--and a response to it that is both personal and collective. That is the paradox that defines this fine book, which is topical without being impersonal, and personal without being irrelevant. And there are gems like "Goldberg Variations," one of the finest poems about music i have ever read, and one which celebrates a sister art in terms worthy. Note this wonderfully expanded and evocative metaphor, almost Classical in its complexity:
"the equivalent.../of marbles they idled with on the coverlet
all night, admiring each globe that trapped
in its center a secret configuration, a tongue
of lapis lazuli or crest of amber, each flower
or flame a dance the universe set to spinning,
sighing or falling to the polished floors
that sang each note back, as clearly
as music--"
The poem is far from mere music appreciation in verse, however--by the end its aesthetic musings have dissolved into something both focused and small, both personal and personal and self reflexive: a turn characteristic of this lovely book as a whole. Heartily recommended.

Trill & Mordent  Oct 15, 2005
Igloria is a master at her craft. I'm in awe at how her poems surprise--each time they grab, they pulse, they touch, tenderly. Each time something close to heart, and at the same time marvelous, is revealed. I'm excited about this new gem!
Brilliant  Oct 4, 2005
This latest book from poet Luisa Igloria is possibly her best and most thoughtful work ever. She is already so internationally lauded that I am constantly in awe of how she still manages to exceed her own standards and put out work both more beautiful and wise than her previous collections of poetry.

Trill & Mordent is amazing :)
