    • Molly Dickinson (Editorial Intern, Tin House Magazine): In Cadaver, Speak Marianne Boruch has a distinct way of capturing a preoccupation with the past—not just a personal past but the past, the distant Roman past, the artistic past, the spiritual past—while rooting it in what is in some ways one of the most uniquely present objects: the physical, living, or recently living, body. She conceives of the body as more than a physical casing to be inspected in an anatomy class. It is a vessel for [...]


    • Reading the first few poems in this collection, I wasn't completely convinced I would enjoy Cadaver, Speak. While the opening poem, "First," peaked my interest - the closing image, "And the door, what of / the hinge, little cry that won't uncry itself-" (3), stuck with me throughout the entire collection - I wasn't completely won over by Boruch's syntax, odd enjambment, or the occasional brusk diction appearing in the middle of an otherwise carefully eloquent piece. Boruch, however, kept my inte [...]



    • A quiet power in these poems and the last title sequence a marveling at the human body (and what it once contained) as the poet observes a dissection of a cadaver by medical students and inhabits the dead woman's voice.

    • 4.5Interiorly referential in a way that makes each reading more powerful. A beautiful meditation on the body, death, art, and how they interact.


    • The title poem of this collection seems to be a successful and ambitious undertaking for the poet. Unfortunately I didn't become too engaged in reading this book.
