Lucid Work 2 de noviembre de 2000
Por KALfromCAL - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
The poems in Earthlight carry the authority of a penetrating, contemplative mind and an unflinching honesty.
Stein grapples with the conundrum we all face: how do we maintain hope and experience joy when confronted with public and private horrors. Though faced with the harshness and precariousness of a brute reality, Stein listens for "improbable music," and works to find redemptive light.
The "ordinary shape of things" is rendered by this writer in language of extraordinary surprise and precision. "I could sit / spellbound, watching a harpist / unreel her audible web." she claims in "Progress Report." And in "The Country of Hope," with droll attention to detail, she gives us this scenario: "The knife-thrower holds still, aims. / The woman's outline bristles with steel. / She's been sullen with him. He's thinking / of drawing blood."
The poems serve not only as vehicles for word craft and music, but for the thought process itself: a way of thinking deeply and differently. This is lucid work -- not a sterile, academic exercise; not an intellectual parlor game. No easy answers, no pat conclusions. Wry, joyful and sensual, Stein addresses large, difficult questions and the small tantalizing nuances of daily life.
Earthlight distinguishes itself as one of the finest volumes recently published. With this accomplished book, Hannah Stein establishes herself as a writer I will be eager to read again. Earthlight is a triumph and a gift.

Contemporary Lyric Poetry at Its Best 22 de marzo de 2000
Por Un cliente - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda
While always tough-minded in her account of the world's harsh edges, Stein often finds a redemptive grace in her poems about the frail offerings of parenthood; the path of long term love relations; the violence of twentieth century politics; and the endless work of pinning down a viable philosophy of life. Stein's poems are remarkable for their fluid movement and dramatic endings.
When I finish Earthlight (and I've read it several times), I come away changed, as if I've discovered some new hidden fold of my inner life. The poems in this book fuse great personal vision to a sharply expressive language-and the reality of a personal life to its public (i.e., political) context.
I have reviewed earlier work by this poet (see the journal NEGATIVE CAPABILITY, Vol. 11, No. 2, 1991). Stein's impressive publishing credits confirm what I have long believed: She is a writer of great talent and wisdom who deserves a wide national readership.

These poems are full of strength and moral courage--also rich imagery, a delight in the sights and sounds of the world, an intellectual grappling with the problems of history. I find in them a way to explore precariousness and an attitude that insists on finding a way to rejoice in it.
