In a free verse that varies from lush to spare, Brian Swann’s poems record the changes of a poet awake to the natural world as well as the world within, quickened by the mind in its constant turning. These are poems of consciousness, subsumed in images of presence and memory, a sensibility constantly searching and intimate in its attention.
—DORIANNE LAUX
