Dzvinia Orlowsky’s sixth book, Bad Harvest, is the book that stakes her claim to an oeuvre, her own territory in American letters. Orlowsky’s voice is stunningly intimate, perhaps because these poems really look outward. Grounded in the funkiness of family love, marriage, the body in time, they turn to face history-our contemporary vortex, and the nightmares of Eastern Europe in the twentieth century. This collection simmers with the magical ingredients of an Eastern European medicine woman’s brew

Dzvinia Orlowsky is a wonderful poet whom far too few people have heard of. This was evident all the way back with the publication of her first book, A Handful of Bees. These are loosely grouped into three separate categories, and Orlowsky leads off with a section of poems about family, where she shows her strongest work (and presages the brilliance to come in her more recent offerings) I had an endin.

Dzvinia Orlowsky is a graduate of the Warren Wilson MFA Program for Writers. She is a founding editor of Four Way Books. Her poems may serve, single-handedly to bring back the New Internationalism, reminding readers how much we need her kind of energetic images, ironic, life-saving wit, prismatic compression, and austere, indecorous heartfelt diction. They are American in their intimate laments, and all is combined to make her poems, gratefully, hers. This edition is published in 1994 by Carnegie Mellon University Press. The collection embarks with poems reflecting on the passing of her father (to whom the book is dedicated). Orlowsky raises the tragedy of losing a parent to a universal plane that's both earnest and cathartic, where even simple belongings of the deceased are imbued with power and testimony. There is a thread of sadness that plaits its way through this volume. Even through the poems on life with immigrant parents, there is a stark, visible yearning. The world of home and the world outside and the conflict of the two to coexist. A situation that many Americans of any given ethnicity can immediately grasp. Imagery in A Handful of Bees is never random, but lucid, in the moment like hot glass forged into a sharp gem. A Handful of Bees is immediately personal, international, and, filtered through the prism of the heart, these poems come forth universally. Dzvinia Orlowsky films a screenplay for the intuition. In just this one volume of sixty-one pages, she undefeatedly answers as many life questions as she has conjured. With stealth, imparting the reader a sense of "being there" in the human condition.
