Resonance

A poet can find in some simple and familiar thing a resonance with some other thing — some complex or mysterious or terrible thing — and write apparently straightforward lines about the first that also address, obliquely, the second. Allison Adair’s piece, “Miscarriage,” which leads the 2018 volume of The Best American Poetry, is an example of this found resonance. Recommended.
