The Lord and the General Din of the World
Crossed and recrossed with a plain speech that is haunting in its directness, Mead's language firmly places the fact of suffering back on our plate. Yet she doesn't force us to eat, nor does she insist that we take her word for it--but we do take her at her word. These fully realized poems remind us of Robert Lowell's darker half--not as worldly, though worldly enough to make us feel as though we've taken a very long journey. And hers is a psalm or a prayer that we can understand; even when her pen leans into the very insular facts of a father in detox and his cruel role in her childhood, the echo of her song is understood, and a real sense of her experiences comes across. Jane Mead is well deserving of the literary prizes she has won, and her first book is well deserving of many readers she is sure to gain.
