Who Said
Jennifer Michael Hecht

Who Said, Jennifer Michael Hecht's brilliant third collection of poetry, playfully asks that perpetual question, effecting mischievous congress with some of the most iconic poems in the English language. Poems such as Keats's "To Autumn," Blake's "The Tyger," Bishop's "One Art," and more—solve the book's cryptograms to discover the poems referenced throughout—are directly called upon to infuse Hecht's own poems with sharp, witty satire, and the raw longings they mask. Who Said outwardly deals with the classical and celebrated as it also reveals the deeply personal peregrinations of an acutely aware woman—poet, philosopher, friend—fearlessly examining the struggles of life and love, from which not everyone emerges.

For Who Said, Jennifer Michael Hecht

"If there is a fourth wall in reading, Hecht has broken it... Split into nine short sections, where the often formal poems refer to each other, [Who Said] embodies, in turn, defiance and curiosity."  Publishers Weekly

"Jennifer Michael Hecht writes delightfully tricky poems that wildly bend the sense of our language."  —Billy Collins, former U.S. Poet Laureate
