Unfinished Child is personal and potent and, above all, markedly original. The poet has infused grief with an emotional imagination, and built an innovative narrative on an elegiac understructure. Its forays into memory are like nothing else. Unfinished Child is an extraordinary work of art. It will challenge and delight you.
This manuscript is just so succulent aesthetically, emotionally, energetically. It explodes the sensual world in a simple way in its sentences and lines. It never fusses or gets in its own way, declaring and evoking what it wants. Every line seems destined to go into the next.
