Susan Howe's inventive, form-breaking style feels as fresh and necessary as ever in Debths, her most recent collection. At moments it is surprisingly rhythmic and tied to meter, but the stand-outs here are Howe's signature imaged-based poems drawn from archival materials. The physical beauty of the poems are enough to make this function as an art book, but the text is so rich that it deserves to be pored over.
