There are just handful of contemporary American poets whom I do not want to live without, whose books I keep by my desk and never lend out. Kelli Russell Agodon is one of these poets. Hourglass Museum is such a beautiful collection. Lyrical, intelligent, magical and honest, the poems are both of this world and out of this world. Her uniquely true and mystical voice is like a glass of pure water: refreshing, healing, and oh, so necessary.
Her poems are an intense vision of the power of art to heal, to help us understand ourselves and our world. Agodon invokes artists as disparate as Kahlo and Cornell, Picasso and Pollock, as a way into the world she creates for us in her deft and musical poems. She brilliantly succeeds.
Kelli Russell Agodon is the author of two previous collections of poetry and lives in the Seattle area.
