Chimney Rock What the Critics Say
About Janelle Masters




This poem ["A Small Thing"] draws the reader into a passionate intensity both painful and transcendent. By placing simple details of dinner preparation beside the awesome fact of death of a loved one, the poet shocks the reader into an awareness of inevitability and illumination. At the same time it is new in its approach, it is eternally familiar in its tender pain and its small quiddities. — Martin Tucker, editor of Confrontation and judge of the Y2K National Poetry Month Award for 2000
