Uncertain Grace
Rebecca L. Wee

In this moody and political debut, Rebecca Wee creates a lyrical mosaic from fragments of memory and imagination, taking Ezra Pound's advice to heart—"The natural object is always the adequate symbol." As line after line gathers detail from the world, her poems build in momentum and present multiple and simultaneous points of reality. In her final poem she offers this insight into experience: "desire and stupor. history. this. / tracks through the snow, leading out."

For Uncertain Grace, Rebecca L. Wee

"Crystalline imagery and an elegiac mood characterize the poems in Rebecca Wee's Uncertain Grace, and the conjunction of these elements provides an intriguing and necessary tension in her work."—American Book Review

"These poems are passionate and sincere, and the voice is heightened until it is sensual and musical. These are emotional poems—each briskly draws our attention to reality and takes us on an arduous journey, after which, my guess is readers will be thoughtful, and for different reasons, so rich are the poems in their consequences."—Jane Miller, Judge of the 2000 Hayden Carruth Award
