THE POEMS IN Anyone Will Tell You explore and subvert form as an expression of the relationships between gender and identity, parent and child, self and other, humanity and the environment, and Earth and the cosmos. Distillation, fluidity, elision, and musicality are all hallmarks of this collection, which relies on the rhythm of the English language to expand the possibilities of meaning from line to line. Investigating the experience of the maternal body and its interaction with technology, Anyone Will Tell You embodies the second wave feminist edict that the personal is political.
