Jessica Fisher's Frail-Craft is winner of the 2006 Yale Series of Younger Poets competition and judge Louise Gl#65533;ck's fourth selection for the series. The book and the dream are the poet's primary objects of investigation here. Through deft, quietly authoritative lyrics, Fisher meditates on the problems and possibilities--the frail craft--of perception for the reader, the dreamer, maintaining that "if the eye can love--and it can, it does--then I held you and was held." In her foreword to the book, Louise Gl#65533;ck writes that Fisher's poetry is "haunting, elusive, luminous, its greatest mystery how plain-spoken it is. Sensory impressions, which usually serve as emblems of or connections to emotion, seem suddenly in this work a language of mind, their function neither metonymic nor dramatic. They are like the dye with which a scientist injects his specimen, to track some response or behavior. Fisher uses the sense this way, to observe how being is converted into thinking."
