Horizon Note (The Brittin. Series: Wisconsin Poetry Series (Book 2001).

One of the best books of contemporary poetry I have ever read. Behn's new book is magnificent. Poem after poem, hear such clarity of complication, such intelligence, such heart. If this book doesn't win ALL the prizes, I'll be surprised

One of the best books of contemporary poetry I have ever read. A poet writing today can only hope to reach the depths that Behn does. If this book doesn't win ALL the prizes, I'll be surprised.

Any serious reader of poetry will cherish this book. com User, November 16, 2001. The opening poem of Horizon Note introduces a spider who reappears at intervals throughout this book.

In language dense and clear, playful and somber, and with a formal exactitude and emotional amplitude suggestive of her own musical training, Behn traverses these horizons “extracting,” like the horizon note that drones through traditional Indian music, “a red needle from the sky.”
