Alice Attie s inaugural volume of poetry is an invitation to collectively bend into silence as we bend into words. In "e;These Figures Lining the Hills,"e; readers enter an eloquent, philosophically poignant space where we slip into the folds of language.
Attie s voice is exquisite and singular. Her brilliant writing brings together language and the ineffable to inhabit the same liminal space where words may both "e;be"e; and "e;not be"e; in an oscillation of possibility and wonder. Her works are dazzling tributes to a poetics of the moment, where Attie s words are poised to take note of the smallest things and where she shapes and reshapes figures to form, and reform, the collage of her writing."e;
