Hot off the press! This insightful review by Michael Klein on The Rumpus!

Rumpus logo Huge thanks to poet and writer Michael Klein for this thoughtful, smart review of The Cloud That Contained the Lighting appearing on The Rumpus!


From the review: “What The Cloud That Contained the Lightning becomes – through its somewhat fragmented and compelling five-act structure (with the wonderfully compelling section titles: “Fission”, “Trinity”, “Match in One Hand”, “The Art of Surrender” and “Clean Hands”) – is a collection of mostly declarative poems that take the invention of the bomb and uses it as a way to talk about what happens to any of us when we depart the precincts of our more rational, empathetic consciousness; when we are driven (by who or what, no one seems to know), to have a family, to have love, and still somehow also be responsible for creating something that can end to human life on an apocalyptic scale.”
