“One of the most interesting books to appear in recent years … Bright Existence is a mysterious and rich collection; of how many books can that be said? It rewards return investigations … In a contemporary poetic terrain where physical experience is being catalogued as never before, it is wonderful to have someone working the spiritual, but not spectral, upper registers with such quiet, skillful passion.”—The Gettysburg Review

“The range of images in [Bright Existence] is astounding . . . Hillman’s ability to perceive the universal in the minute, the strange in the familiar, transforms everyday activities such as recycling, eating burgers an d fries at McDonald’s, and running errands (cleaners, shoe repair, butcher, dentist) into moments of spiritually charged healing . . . A fine collection.”—Choice

“Hillman’s imagistic gift is great . . . but like Frost she also has a gift for phrasing, for catching the tones of a speaker’s thought”—Mark Jarman, Hudson Review
