Having Been an Accomplice by Laura Cronk

Reviewed By

What I enjoy about Laura Cronk’s Having Been an Accomplice (winner of the Persea Books’ Lexi Rudnitsky 2011 First Book Prize in Poetry,) is that the way that it brings the reader into a feminine landscape and mindset. Naturally, I tend to gravitate towards female poets, in terms of their perspective and a shared collective, and typically don’t enjoy “political poetry.” (actually, I’ve probably never used those words in an actual sentence before,) but in this collection of Poetry, I’m also brought into a political world that is flushed with female agency.
