    Schnackenberg gets soaring cool points and not just because of her name's random and unpronounceable consonant-jumbles. She is so good she actually MADE ME CRY WITH HAPPINESS.She really knows her history, for one. And she's no poet to simply squeeze in "fun facts" to distract from a lack of artistry - she dissects settings and figures with a scary-sharp mind. Fans of Robyn Schiff will note a wild (but somehow logical) csacade from image into image - with good reason; Schackenberg was one of Schiff's mentors."Imaginary Prisons," with its complex interpretation of the Sleeping Beauty myth (it explores the kingdom frozen in sleep under the pricked-finger spell), is probably the most accessible long poem in this volume, insofar as its subject matter doesn't make you feel stupid for not knowing much about Chopin, Flaubert or Simone Weil. At least with the latter, more historically based poems, you don't need to be as brilliant or well-read as Schnackenberg to feel inspired, or to revel (weepy-eyed, in some [my:] case) in her language.I think Schnackenberg gets a bad rap sometimes for being cold, perhaps because of her formalist elements or intellectual subject matter. While this kind of line between feeling/ intellect does a disservice to many poets, Schnack does open up more in "Paper Cities," a poem with the quiet anguish of insomnia and heartache. "I envy the unfaithful / They know what to do with the night" -- here, read all of it on this person's blog!: http://violetsandhyacinths.blogspot.c...I don't know if I'd ever be able to write like Schnack-attack, but one point of interest for fellow poets: I think she's considered one of the neo-formalists (right? Not sure. Confusing her with Bogan?), but her use of form is so deft, barely noticable -- the sense of a subtle inner logic -- that can surprise with the occasional rhyme.I also recommend you look at a picture of her from the '80s. Total babe with sci fi movie hair. AK + GS = <3 4ever

    I really wanted to like this book more than I did. I guess I was disappointed by the book's unremitting lugubriousness, the melancholic self-absorption bordering on self-pity that enfolds the poet's voice like a smothering cellophane wrap. "Alack, I am lonely" and "Alas, my beloved has deserted me" are fine and good sentiments, but one expects more scope and depth than this from a poet of Schnackenberg's caliber.Some of the poems herein have intriguing set-ups but ultimately left me feeling let down. "Imaginary Prisons," a partial re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty fairy tale, is an exhaustingly static-feeling poem that doesn't bring much new insight to the well-trodden mythic territory it stakes out. "The Heavenly Feast," an ode to saintly 20th-century philosopher Simone Weil, is well-wrought but ultimately does not do justice to Weil, whose shortest writings contain more searing emotion than this long poem Schnackenberg has written in her honor. "Sonata" is an interesting exercise in form, but feels overly drawn-out and repetitive, given its slender and frustratingly abstract subject matter.On the other hand, two poems in this collection, "Two Tales of Clumsy" and "Supernatural Love," are strikingly good and memorable, effectively yoking together substance and form so as to climb mountain-peaks of emotional intensity where the air is so rarefied and bracingly cold, one's breath is quite taken away.

    Schnackenberg shows incredible skill in using proper forms in her poetry that is a bit out of style nowadays, including astounding uses of internal rhyme. Her etymology is beyond belief. This all sounds very stuffy, but her poems are eminently readable and very moving. Supernatural love is absolute perfection!

    One of the best contemporary American poets; one of my favorite books. The title poem is often anthologized, and for good reason.

    I'm enchanted by the musicality of Schnackenberg's poetry. "Sonata" lives, incomprehensibly transposing, in me as a deeply felt thought.

    These poems...you'll ask yourself how you didn't know about them before. You'll wonder how you lived without them. This book...it's one of my most treasured possessions.
