What others are saying about Between the Twilight and the Sky

Say a moth alights, trembling, on a page. Between its wings and the page is a poem—in fact, the poem seems to be an articulation of this space. The words of the poem are drawn from the residuum of a library—classical myth, philosophy, poetry—as it traces the liminal membrane between perception and voice, voice and mind. Between the Twilight and the Sky, Jennie Neighbors’s stunning collection, reverberates in the interstices “between the unimaginable and the incomplete” “like a river announcing its depth and extremity.” At its heart, affection, capacity, “as music that winds.”
—Ann Lauterbach

Jennie Neighbors’s new book Between the Twilight and the Sky is a brilliant, engaging adventure for the reader. Great poems in three Cantos wherein we are brought into “the direction the poem must travel” and find “the anomalous you must meet to become.” Hers is a “music that winds.”
—Robin Blaser
