Overview
-

Time is Elizabeth Barlett's mentor; as adversary, friend, interlocutor, magistrate. Her concerns with past, present and future are evident. They identify her as participant and spectator through the images of childhood, adolescence, maturity, middle age. Her awareness of time can be poignant, bitter, resigned, anxious, hopeful, ironical. Out of her fascination for her subject and words, she has created a poetics of time.

"Her poems are the result of a discipline that assuredly justifies the writer, and should console the right readers (if anything can)." -Marianne Moore "One of few American poets whose greatest strength is her power as a thinker...Endorsed for those who enjoy poetry of the finest quality and for those who seek the companionship of a gifted, thought-provoking mind" - San Diego Union.
