"Poets," writes Richard Howard, "find striking how you can seek advice from themselves, to divide and triumph, to separate the speech-atom--'the magazine of my different self,' Rilke referred to as it. for girls poets, (Christina Rossetti, say, or Virginia Woolf) voices from 'outside' are minatory; for males they're in basic terms the inspiration. Arvio has listened tough and heedfully to those hauntings of hers, definitely the main 'convincing' visitations for the reason that Merrill's Ouija-board transcriptions, and has prepared her overhearing within the readiest demeanour for her personal listeners: the cautious, shapely stanzas; the transparent conundrum of spirit ownership, that's Arvio's poetic incarnation. the complete sequence is an articulation of what we used to name 'the internal life': one woman's passionate wondering of her assets, and their both passionate (if frequently derisive) solutions. She has solid her personal discussion of the lifeless, one way or the other handling to be humorous and erotic right now, pursued and in ownership. i like listening to her persuasive voices; they're the girl herself."
