Rhino reviews

Thank you Rhino poetry and Emily Perez for this thoughtful review:

War poetry often speaks from the deployed soldier’s point of view. Hart’s collection presents an essential counterpoint, giving voice to the networks of civilians whose lives are forever altered by the experiences of their loved ones. She reveals the paradox of helplessness and complicity. These are voices on a precipice, voices not-yet in mourning, but already aware of the need to be “like an ocean” ready to “carry [the soldiers’] broken parts.”
