The Kenyon Review reviews Jennifer Kronovet's Awayward

The Kenyon Review acknowledges Jennifer Kronovet's Awayward this July. Zach Savich tenderly examines Kronovet's use of language: "A mirror can make a small room feel larger: the tightly framed poems in Jennifer Kronovet's first collection Awayward, often expand through linguistic mirrorings; their terms evolve through repetition. Excitingly, such repetitions don;t just pile up reflections, like in a house of mirrors, but consider the person looking into them, The viewer comes to see herself, which creates intamacy and also distance, much as one walking, when seen, becomes "that person walking" (The Country from A distance").
