Poetry. Jewish Studies. Women's Studies. WINNER OF THE 2015 TENTH GATE PRIZE. Barber's third full-length collection is described by Maggie Dietz as "Formally agile and tersely emotive." Dietz continues, "To give over to the trustworthy intelligence of these poems, to inhabit the world as Barber sees and painstakingly recreates it, is to come away gratified, and graced by the poet's immense and intricate gifts. WORKS ON PAPER is a brilliant and virtuosic book, unflinching in its incisiveness." Daniel Tobin says Barber possesses "a contemplative brilliance rare in contemporary American poetry," while Martha Collins concludes that her poems "speak both for and beyond the fragility of existence... seamlessly fusing an often autumnal natural world with delicate evocations of illness, grief, and love."
