and are never the same. These poems record and recover a rich world, one that comes alive to the focused eye, to an ear attuned to authentic sound, and a mind both spry and surprising. Gregory Orr. Hudso.is a poet of fine observational skills.

Taking the warp of dream, sometimes nightmare, and weaving it with the ordinary world, the poems of The Armillary Sphere, Ann Hudson's award-winning debut collection, do not simplify the mystery but deepen it. Just as the interlocking rings of the armillary sphere of the title represent the great circles of the heavens, so do the poems herein demonstrate out of the beautiful, the extraordinary, and the cast off, a fresh scaffolding, a new way to see out from the center of our selves, a new measure of our relationship to the things of this world and the next. Chosen from hundreds of manuscripts as this year's winner of the Hollis Summers Poetry Prize, Ann Hudson's The Armillary Sphere possesses, in the words of final judge Mary Kinzie, "... a brightness of spirit and quickness of thought that are conveyed with extraordinary care as she frames moments of experience. Her style is unobtrusive-no fireworks of phrasing obscure the thing felt and seen. So simple a device as taking an intransitive verb transitively can shed strong light on the moment: "A fine sheen /of sweat glistens the cocktail glasses,"-and Hudson studies emotions with a brave restraint that resists cliché, while deftly joining together intuitions that bring contradictory or opposing charge.... Both circular and digressive, Hudson's portrayal of beings of all ages poised on their varying thresholds brings a novelist's sense of details unfolding into their future under the control of a fine poet's pure and condensed language of likeness."

Ann Hudson is the poet we all wish we could be. Her honest, raw insight into the small but powerful moments of life make modern poetry worth reading.

Ann Hudson's poems reveal the beauty, irony, and pain of small everyday moments. Moments that I barrel by every day, taking no notice, Hudson picks up, burnishes and uncovers their essence helping me to see them in all their humanity. Buy this book--it's a wonderful testament to the power and relevance of poetry today.

This is a haunting collection that manages to be both spare and detailed at the same time. It's amazing that someone can conjure such images and such complex emotional landscapes in so few words. Poetry at its best, and highly recommended!
