Brian Henry takes the blank, desolate canvas of snow and searches “for a river of color buried.” With calm precision he sways from physical to abstract, from stasis to motion. The balance creates a chilling vista on the human connection to the ambivalent force of nature. Henry is the author of ten books of poetry and has garnered numerous awards as a translator. His words reframe perception with unsentimental observations and a seasoned comfort with the gray rapaciousness of winter.

PRAISE

[Brian Henry] offers a powerful re-calibration of the senses, shifting our attention beneath the surfaces and skins of things.

Publishers Weekly

Brian Henry ... entices the reader into the hidden crevices and empty spaces of daily existence. 

PN Review

Henry is a keen observer who writes from a constantly changing perspective. 

Jacket

What impresses the most is the fact that Henry is still experimenting and growing and there is a genuine excitement preceding each new book. As he has proven so far, there is little in language or subject matter that cannot find its way into the poetic idiom.
