Necessary Angels

Poems

Carolyn Maisel's poems are spoken by a sort of gnostic angel whose impulse is always to describe the indescribable, to say what cannot be said. The remarkable blend of passion and concision such poems required, the discipline they embody mark Maisel as a masterful poet. How fortunate we are to have had her lustrously imaginative spirit among us, and to have, now, this beautiful book. —Christopher Howell
