The informing spirit of Garretts second collection is music -- in the cadences of the language, the forms and resolutions of the poems. For her, a memorable poem is a kind of two-part invention, an interplay of the readers imagination and the poets intention.

As in Bachs deceptively simple studies of that name, when the two discrete melodic lines of readers and poets imagination run parallel, polyphony is suggested. Garretts poetry often recalls the early metaphysical poets, especially Donne, and, indeed, scattered through her work one finds the telltale word-signs: compass, envoi, Pythagorean, cosmos, a lovers pact, cipher -- Love, believe- for this is a two-part invention, /Your hand in mine, blindfold, against the gathering/Dark.
