I.e., great lines: “Is that my face on someone else?” (“Winter Poem Written in Autumn”)- great sequences: “And you hate filing. / And this had no mystery. / And you are greedy because you drew attention to yourself in public.” (“Winter Poem Written in Summer”)- and good, clean epistemology: “I am so scared of the winter—or I used to be, when there was nothing to” (“Winter Poem Written in Autumn”). Amanda is somewhat quiet by nature, though not, as it turns roundly out, by Nature. More should be known of the work of Amanda Ackerman by more others and their others.-Vanessa Place (http://www.constantcritic.com/vanessa...)
