With the title of her latest collection, Love, Like Pronouns, Waldrop demonstrates with deft humor the relational aspects of any discourse. And, she implicitly suggests the similar slipperiness in human emotion and in human speech, as both the love object and the pronoun’s referent easily shift with, even because of any attempt to articulate it. The title also subtly resonates with Waldrop’s admiration for other writers, as well as demonstrates her awareness that each act of writing occurs in relation to—and within—the environment of other writings, past and present. In this collection, poem cycles dedicated to other writers echo with subtle synchronisms of that writer’s forms, tones, textures. Yet from out of this synchronism, Waldrop evolves her own unique mediums of address. Each poem travels its own distinct and unrepeatable conduit between experience and language. Waldrop is an accomplished and applauded writer of poetry, fiction, essays and translation.
