“"The unusual needs to be commented upon . . . —Anne Sexton, “One-Eye, Two-Eyes, Three-Eyes”

Debuting in 1971, Anne Sexton’s Transformations joined Margaret Atwood’s Power Politics, Galway Kinnell’s The Book of Nightmares, and Adrienne Rich’s The Will to Change, among other remarkable collections, yet only one has “the smell of a journey” emanating from “the electric kitchen” (“Red Riding Hood”)."
