Madeline DeFrees recommends
Intricate Moves, poems and an essay by Joan Swift: “One of the Northwest’s best poets collects her poems dealing with rape-both those originally included in
The Dark Path of Our Names (Dragon Gate) and later poems. Swift is the winner of three NEA grants, the most recent being the only one awarded in Washington state. Her poems have also won an Ingram Merrill grant and have appeared in
DoubleTake, The New Yorker, and
Poetry.” (Chicory Blue)
