It's been a while since I tried a new poet, and Tracy K. Smith was so rewarding. She is a very skilled word slinger, creating images, patterns and rhythms with words unlike anything I've ever read before. Even the dreariest images, the frantic, the unsettling -- they were all somehow musical because of her use of internal rhyme and general wordplay. This is a must-own.
