Fierce and giving, Spaar's exquisite verse isolates essential moments of vulnerability and wonder. A series on insomniain the voices of some notable insomniacsis among the most moving extended sequences in recent memory. Elsewhere, she traces poetry back to its primordial rootsprayer, lullabye, mourning, exaltation. Propelled throughout by a resolute belief in the relationship between the human and the cosmic Blue Venus is "a brilliant new star in poetry's firmament" (Carol Muske-Dukes).
