T S. Eliot, Elizabeth Bishop, John Ashbery — and Jorie Graham. The New Yorker places Ms. Graham in this distinguished line of poets, heralding the Pulitzer Prize winner as a profound voice in American poetry. Now, in her eighth collection, she further enhances her reputation with a book-length sequence of verse that is a stunning work of grandeur.

The New Republic writes, "for 'swarm,' in other words...read 'be born again.' Graham is writing about a spiritual turning point, a new beginning.... Beauty — that is, the pure sense-perception which has long been a concern for Graham — is no longer the most important criterion. Now goodness is...[and] the idea of submission, of obedience, without understanding: one must 'yield' before 'hearing the reason' for yielding."

Harvard Review

Capacious talent.... The bodiless virtuosity of formal mastery has met the flexibility and passion of the mind and eye at liberty.
