Jay Parini on Atwood

An incredibly flaccid review of Margaret Atwood's new book of poems. My review of same is in the current issue of Quill & Quire; it's not online yet, so you can't see it, but suffice to say my take on it's quite a bit less generous than Parini's. It's hard to believe that Parini and I read the same book. It's hard to believe that Parini likes the book as much as he claims to, if only because the dullness of his praise is echoed by the dullness of his prose.
