LUCKY BREAK by Terry Ehret



Terry Ehret's third collection, LUCKY BREAK, responds to our fractured times with a lyrical blend of levity and gravity, whimsy and horror, like the sculpture that inspired the title poem. From the opening musings on the origins of writing, to the sequence of poems based on the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard's Poetics of Space, to the final lyrics set against Poetry. Terry Ehret's third collection, LUCKY BREAK, responds to our fractured times with a lyrical blend of levity and gravity, whimsy and horror, like the sculpture that inspired the title poem.

Terry Ehret's poems are splendidly original. There is a willingness to speak the truth about large, dark aspects of our world. She takes the philosophical ideas of Gaston Bachelard, whose words serve as epigraphs to several poems, and breathes life into them with deep explorations of personal experience and stunning images that continue to vibrate long after the book is closed. Terry Ehret's poems act like spells to alter the expectations of logic.

Poetry. Terry Ehret's third collection, LUCKY BREAK, responds to our fractured times with a lyrical blend of levity and gravity, whimsy and horror, like the sculpture that inspired the title poem. From the opening musings on the origins of writing, to the sequence of poems based on the French philosopher Gaston Bachelard's Poetics of Space, to the final lyrics set against the war in Iraq, Ehret reminds us that every catastrophe also opens us to possibilities: new ways of imagining and perceiving our own history, landscape, language, time, and relationships. Here are poems, crafted with intelligence and vision, that speak to this moment, living as we are in a world "at the edge of all our changes."
