    A meticulous and affecting collection, Susan Hutton s On the Vanishing of Large Creatures is imbued with a sense of history alongside its personal connections, a feature used to wonderful effect Its obsessions seem to revolve around the gathering of knowledge, and our occasional failure to do so a memorable line from Therefore, beautiful in its economy We can know only so much of the world.Hutton s lyricism is admirable throughout, and yet for me it was the poems intellectual heft that I found most distinctive Case in point, a striking line from Lost Armies Gettysburg was replaced by a battle as the word Gettysburg once replaced trees, and so words are rewritten by what they mean I don t read a ton of poetry I really ought to read much , and so I don t quite have the language to describe what I liked so well about On the Vanishing of Large Creatures, but I m glad that I picked this one up.

    Read as 4 1 2 stars Now this one did hit me Much so than other books of poetry I have read recently.There is a quiet mixture of desperation and hope in these delicious lines To use a very overused adjective, I would say that the whole collection is haunting.Absolutely fantastic poetry Can t wait to read from her.
