    I read "Bleeding" about four years ago and then I avoided May Swenson for a long time because I was afraid of her. That poem sent me on a fit of uncontrollable nervous laughter and it made my arm do this thing it sometimes does when I get the willies and it goes almost numb. I am not even hemophobic. Submerge me in blood; I don't care. But "Bleeding" is so gross. Anyway, I don't like Swenson's love poetry, which she seems to be most famous for (why?), but there is some really neat stuff in this collection about death, monkeys, baseball, whales, DNA, dreams and blood.

    This is the most comprehensive collection of Swenson's work that has been published to date. I recommend it. She's a genius.

    Swenson masters the metaphor as well as description in her poetry. I love "To the Statue" and "Four-Word Lines."
