  1. A beautiful, melancholic collection of poems that positively reek of the South, it s like a sensual walk through humid, rotting Southern life The audacious originality of the ordinary sometimes suggests an opening, and to enter is to hear the measure not of nostalgia but nearness that fetching lack of doubt and perspective, a world zoomed in close enough to count black ants under dog stunted spirea.


  2. For the past few months, I have been taking a bi monthly trip to Raven Used Books in Cambridge I spend an hour or so pouring over the poetry section picking up volumes that look interesting I avoid the stuff I m most familiar with unless it is Ted Hughes or Peter Richards , and choose books from poets I ve never heard of.This was one of the prizes from a recent trip and I am very pleased it found it s way into my basket Science Steepleflower brims over with lush phrasing It is easy to get tangle [...]


  3. Science and Steepleflower overflows with the tactile, the lush, the gritty, the extravagant the indignity of senility, the window of a burning barn, the land arborescing, the public urinal, horseshoes clanging in the distance, that gorgeous galena ore which is emotion Intimate wealth of landscape.I often find it difficult not to skim just a little, but this book holds me to every word and its shape in both mouth and mind.


  4. heather sent this to me and i dunno if it was her comments on the text, or my mood that afternoon, but yeah, i found it sort of anti woman but then, i read an interview with the poet s wife and she said she was having a love affair with the book i can understand, seeing the book manifest from manuscript to book form would be some sort of experience but i dunno, maybe i need to take another read.


  5. Gander seems, in this book, to be interested in the life cycle of humans in the context of the long existing facts of nature His language is sometimes obscure, drawing on geological and botanical terms, but always the images are rich and dense He is remarkably skilled at making the poems immensely personal and intimate with only the smallest mention of a persona in the poem.
