Abstract
The poems in Judy Halebsky’s Space/Gap/Interval/Distance, winner of the Sixteen Rivers Press 2011 Poets-Under-Forty Chapbook Contest, combine memory and depth of feeling with luminous observation and precision of craft. In a voice utterly and breathtakingly her own, Halebsky translates her experience of living in Japan into poems influenced by butoh dance, haiku, and, momentously, the Japanese language itself, finding in kanji, the basic written characters of Japanese, a rich source of insight, metaphor, and fresh associative power. ~ publisher's description
