See 1 Critic Review



In her sixth book of poems, Carol Frost gives a bravura performance as metaphorist and deft artist. Her poems are an inquiry into morals and mystery: she explores love, lust, pleasure, loneliness, regret, and envy, while voicing a longing for love that cannot be sustained. Frost is a thoroughly original poet whose artistic project is unique in American poetry, and this is her best work.

Elsewhere, Frost is more resigned to love's loss: ""Carry me to hell/ deep into the kingdom of Dis where my love lies,"" instructs the poet in ""Farewell to Two Muses."" Frost's work is dense, requiring-and rewarding-the reader's deep attention.
