A Review of Sarah Hannah's Inflorescence by Shannon Walsh

Shannon Walsh's review of Sarah Hannah's Inflorescence in Zoland Poetry begins:

"It would be unfair not to admit before delving into this review that it is with some bias. Sarah Hannah was my teacher, friend and mentor until her death in May of 2007; six months before the release of Inflorescence. Yet this relationship in itself might not have created a blind spot when it comes to Hannah’s poetry. Instead the problem, if it is a problem, is that when I read the poems in Inflorescence, I hear her read them, with every perfect inflection and intonation, a pleasure that unfortunately others can no longer have."

The rest of her review is here.

Shannon, who is an associate editor at Zoland Poetry, is in the second year of the M.F.A. program at Emerson.
