Cynthia Genser's landscapes, like those of D.H. Lawrence, are analogues of human emotions; her men and women exist in their effects - prototypes one minute, passionate and distinctly visible individuals the next. Person and place invite the reader into an adventure that begins and ends everywhere. The language employed throughout the volume is voluptuous, sensuous, precise. Of Genser's later work, Adrienne Rich wrote that she was stirred by "the sudden flash of sounds and images cohering."
