Staff Reviews

This seventh book by Cohen, who is the Director of the Blacksmith House Poetry Series here in Cambridge, is a marvel. The extreme economy of her language combined with a closely focused but slightly askew attention makes each poem a delight.

— From Everything (Staff Pick)


The poems in Everything, Andrea Cohen’s seventh collection, traffic in wonder and woe, in dialogue and interior speculation. Humor and gravity go hand in hand here. Cohen’s poems have the rueful irony of a stand-up comic playing to an empty room. But look around: there are wrecking balls, zebras, lovers, milk money. It’s a room to hang around in.

Praise For…

"...A master stylist, Cohen uses em dashes and commas with an exactness that allows each poem to become elliptical and self-contained. These poems take no 'thing' for granted, not even the concept of eternity, as Cohen declares in 'Openings': 'I didn’t want// forever forever.' It is the wit that astounds here, and an intelligence that sees the world anew." --Publishers Weekly: https://www.publishersweekly.com/9781945588686
