“Striking. . . . Kelly is a descendant of Sylvia Plath by way of the wintry Louise Glück ― her poems are animated by roiling, mostlydark emotion, but they’re spare, composed and often quite short. . . . The fantastical creatures in Bestiary are almost all hybrids― mermaids, minotaurs, griffins ― as opposed to mere monsters, and their in-betweenness calls attention equally to the danger ofdissolution and the possibility of unity. Kelly is drawn to both outcomes, and her uncertainty gives her writing its peculiar magnetism.” ― The New York Times Book Review
