Through the Window


Praise for Carol Moldaw's work:
“Several different forms of maturity--emotional, artistic, religious--come together in Moldaw's second book of poems, which repeatedly achieves lyric junctures of shivering beauty. Her vision is like that of a seasoned naturalist observing the play of life's impulses over the crust of the earth. Estrangement and new love; miscarriage, friends' children, and the interlinking of generations are some of the subjects quietly suspended in these oblique, wily, and intensely intelligent poems.”

The New Yorker

“Another Part of the Field," a long sequence based in the I CHING fills the last third of the book. For this sequence Moldaw has devised a six-lline stanza of three beats per line based on the ancient hexagrams, and composed a series of poems inspired by the throws of the coins. The result is a very rich poem, whose cumulative effect is paradoxically peaceful, cathartic, and unexcerptable, like the experience of lying in a field of very tall grass.”

—Annie Finch, Poetry Flash
