New Review of THE BRANCHES, THE AXE, THE MISSING

NewPages raves about Charlotte Pence’s “nuanced” and “refined” poetry chapbook: “Varied in form and length, each poem adds another link to the narrative chain that brings together a complex and sophisticated extended poem that dwells on our evolutionary desire to communicate…Displaying a keen sense for nuanced storytelling while remaining in the realm of carefully refined poetic language, Pence creates multiple narrative lines within the limitations of the chapbook. Each condensation of language allows the reader to read and re-read the chapbook, piecing together new arcs every time.” Buy it here.
