Gardnening in the Dark
Gardening in the Dark, Kasischke’s sixth book of poetry, continues to explore the transformative power of imagination. Her poems take us to the flip side of human consciousness, where anything can happen at any time. Tinged with surrealism, her work makes visionary leaps from the quotidian to sudden, surprising epiphanies.
"Kasichke's verses walk that perfect Plathian line between the everyday...and the abyss of loss that lies just beneath it." -(Time)
"Laura Kasichke's poems probe the lives of supposedly ordinary women along with the extraordinary emotional tumult those lives conceal." -(New York times)
