The Garment In Which No One Had Slept
Author: Pam Rehm
Publisher: Burning Deck (1993)
"A young woman came to discuss her poems. She said very little. It was as if she were clothed in an intense hesitancy, a serious shyness. Now, in The Garment In Which No One Had Slept, come these poems which are wonderfully various in their address and in what they address. Hesitation has been used 'to have something to give back,' shyness has been used as 'a nerve into all circumstances.' What Pam Rehm has given in these poems is worthy of our own intense and serious attention."
