Sacred Precinct (2003) & Easing into Dark (2012)


Easing into Dark

“The power and consolations of family resonate throughout all of the poems in Kudler’s moving and deeply reflective new collection. . . . Joy is generational and renewable, making the slowly encroaching ‘dark’ more tolerable and even, at times, something to honor. Mature and wise, replete with the pleasures of the natural world, Easing into Dark is a volume to savor again and again. —David St. John

Sacred Precinct

“This book is life in itself. Here, a close self-regard; there, a wider regard of the world—each poem precise, often scalpel sharp, always keen in its music, always wise. . . . Sacred Precinct is a large book, every poem in it earned.” —Gerald Fleming
