POETRY "White Summer, the first collection from poet Joelle Biele, is a book full
of gorgeous language, delicate yet enduring imagery, and a quiet lyric intensity
that is far too rare in contemporary poetry. No life detail— a fly, a group of
starlings, a festival of dolls- escapes Biele's notice, and we are better for having
seen the world through her eyes. Biclc's poems, which range from short lyrics to
longer meditations, are startling in their clarity, precise in their diction, and deft in
their craft.
