Obsession with the Dogwood
June 2, 2018
“I seek out Jane Blue’s poems because they search every smidgeon of a one-of-a-kind world that we eventually can see has been spying on us, showing us our own strangeness. Blue wrestles with the entanglement of the enigmatic, the threatening, and her own aspiration to fully visionary understanding.” —Sandra McPherson
Note: Jane passed away in October 2019. We are honored to have been able to publish her last book.
