    2. I admit that I read this aloud, quickly, in an afternoon, and most of it just washed over me as beautiful, interesting language with occasional moments of clarity of thought or feeling or image I felt like I was in this mind aviary and things were just flying around above me and sometimes I d get a glimpse of something graspable Which was nice And upon looking closely at a few pages it is a relief to notice there is so much going on here, that it does hold up and make sense with scrutiny, even [...]


    3. The strength in this book really rises out of the epigraph from Plato s Theaetetus, in the proposition of birds as ideas, or creatures that would come to roost in the mind Kelsey follows it with such strong birds, like wind, or pennants, that populate the book What is most interesting to me is how language weights the book down, and how it seems that it is Kelsey s intention to show that language does act as burden to our ideas.


    4. I loved this book first a few years ago as a catalog of formal possibilities and a sort of abstract sensation compilation I read it again just now and found it far richer even than I had found it previously There s nothing I don t love about it Really looking forward to getting a copy of her new book in my hands.
