      The Christian Science Monitor is an international news organization that delivers thoughtful, global coverage via its website, weekly magazine, online daily edition, and email newsletters.   The poems in Zero at the Bone, Stacie Cassarino’s highly accomplished first book, emit a sonic calm even — or especially — while teasing out the adversities in their subject matter. Her tone modulates between intimate remark and a flatness called out by the weight of the scene. Often her speaker observes herself in memory, moving through a landscape, carrying a dayload of uncertainty.   I was reading Midwest Eclogue by David Baker (see earlier entry), the poem "Melancholy Man," and the note on it at the back of the book referring to Anatomy of Melancholy by Robert Burton. Having written recently on melancholy, I was struck by that coincidence and then further stricken by the desire to read the Burton book. The author of eight books of poetry, most recently Midwest Eclogue (W. W. Norton), as well as two critical books, Heresy and the Ideal: On Contemporary Poetry and Meter in English: A Critical Engagement, David Baker has received fellowships and awards from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
