The counterpointed and imagistic work collected in Gaze reveals a poet uniquely concerned with the idea of vision: how the objective world (the world of time and memory), the world of the inner life, and the other world (the world of imagination and alternate life) may be seen, and how the experience of this seeing may alter itself and create meaning. Each of the book’s three sections examines one of these categories of seeing, moving between narrative and lyric modes, between the undisguised voice of the poet and the voices of a variety of characters, creatures, and ghosts.Swinging between moments of delicate connection (touching a girl’s wrist) and striking brutality (a boy slamming a just-caught fish against a boat’s stern to kill it “as he was taught”), Howell turns these modes of vision in on each other, and the result is a collection wholly unified and unlike anything come before.

Overall, a wonderfully fresh book of poetry. The best in the book tend to focus on themes of death, memory, dreams, and tender "mundane" moments. The book is divided into three sections. Although the last section--"III: The Inner Life"--contains the best poems in the book, the other two sections--"I: View from the Afterlife" and "II: The Other Life"--have some gems, too, though the second section feels a bit too goofy/surrealistic at times and slows the collection down a bit. The last three poems in the book--"The Mystery of Names," "I Wake Again," and "Listen"--are some of the best contemporary poems I've read anywhere in the past few years, and the book is worth buying for those poems alone. Also, Milkweed Editions did a great job with the production of the book.

A finalist in the prestigious Rilke prize, Howell's 'Gaze' is a stunning book, a series of lyric poems that are fine-edged & crow-feathered, haunted by memory & landscape. One of my favourite collections from the past year.
