The intelligence, the imagination, the quick humor in Solar Prominence all point in the same direction: toward the poem as a made thing, a thing of light, crafted, the way craft, through its various art, transforms the generalities into the specifics of magic. The layering of detail, the building and unbuilding of the arguments of narrative, the commissions and omissions of the poet's autobiography form designs as well as designations, symbols as well as signatures. There is a wealth of information here, but changed, at every turn, into different riches. -- Stanley Plumly
