The wildly unrestrained poems in Splinters Are Children of Wood, Leia Penina Wilson's second collection and winner of the Ernest Sandeen Prize in Poetry, pose an increasingly desperate question about what it means to be a girl, the ways girls are shaped by the world, as well as the role myth.

The wildly unrestrained poems in Splinters Are Children of Wood, Leia Penina Wilson's second collection and winner of the Ernest Sandeen Prize in Poetry, pose an increasingly desperate question about what it means to be a girl, the ways girls are shaped by the world, as well as the role myth plays in this coming of age quest. In this way the poems act as a continuous song, an ode, or a lament revivifying a narrative that refuses to adopt a storyline. Samoan myths and Western.

Janet Holmes's second book of poems explores and interrogates the quotidian life of the late twentieth century for what exists behind its often seductive appearance. In these poems we see beneath acceptable, sleek surfaces into the turbulence they often conceal, as the splendid green tuxedo of the title may disguise a heart that harbors racism, fear, and violence. Holmes exhorts us to look beyond the face value of what presents itself, to resist literal interpretations, and to plumb the many depths afforded by each encounter with the world outside ourselves. In the second half of The Green Tuxedo, Holmes draws on recently discovered diaries kept by her journalist father nearly fifty years before her birth.

Coiril
Janet Holmes has the rare ability to write layered, moving, lyrical poetry that transports the reader and allows her to think and wonder and imagine. Many of the poems deal with the beauty or sleek appearance of the surface while delving into the dirth of it just underneath. Juxtaposition also is used well. As great as her work was in "The Physicist at the Mall", an earlier collection of poetry, "The Green Tuxedo" soars to the next level of creativity.
Lightseeker
Janet Holmes's poetry treads the line between accessible and intense. The poems about her father and about nature and relationships are touching without being trite. If you have refused to read any poetry more modern than Frost, because it is all too confusing, here you are in for a treat. The poems and their structure well-repay multiple readings and close attention.
