About Take Three:3

Edited by Askold Melnyczuk


Features poetry by Jennifer Barber, Maggie Nelson and Mark Bibbins.


"Whether she is speaking of a place, a picture or an ordinary supper with friends, Jenny Barber's poetry is at once vivid and delicate. In a poem called ‘Storm at Sunset’ she writes: ‘a skirt whirls over/the skirts of lettuces,/sensual and sheer...’ With those two final adjectives, she could be describing her own work."

—Linda Pastan

"Jennifer Barber's poems are sensual, attentive lyrics which move with a growing necessity and insight and surprise. I am grateful for this fine book."

—Jean Valentine
