Hi John,

Yup. Typo. That's what I get for typing it myself rather than googling it. That line and the following strike me as a brilliant repackaging of "Darkling Thrush."

Good to see people here rediscovering Jennings. Introduced to her by my late wife, I've long been an admirer - even though she could be a little on the gloomy side. Another poet with depressive episodes, I believe - and the biography will be interesting. However, I always enjoyed the seemingly artless skill of her writing and its thoughtful and tender register.

Bumping this just to say that I tore through EJ’s Every Changing Shape, and it was a wonderful read. Hard to believe she published it at only 35 years old. It’s a splendid piece of criticism chock full of great excerpts, quotes and biographical notes on her subjects -- and it has steered me on to related delights.

Thanks, bis!
