Reviews - What do customers think about O Woolly City?
A compilation of brief, free-verse poetry Jan 5, 2008
Priscilla Sneff presents O Woolly City, a compilation of brief, free-verse poetry interspersed with moments of stream-of-consciousness writing. Sneff earned the Kenyon Review Poetry Prize for O Wooly City when it was a manuscript; problems with publication have finally been resolved, allowing readers to savor the rich, yearning verses for themselves. Dancing across the fleeting moments of human life and the endless cycles of nature, O Wooly City alights the mind with the keen observations of a scientist and the reflective contemplation of the mystic. "Picture": Having rolled my old glance / Like an agate well out of my twenties, now / I'm wearing a mother's eye, and a broom then a mop / Waltzes past; it is / Hat-clap't with some capstan. O / Mirth! and mistressing that mirror, my / Daughter; her armful of frail sleeve, her face flushed with the warmth.
