“In the Lake of Your Bones is a poetry book that opens like a revelation. Peggy Dobreer blends memory, meditation, nature, sensuality, and takes us to the lucid territory between intuition and wisdom, desire and surrender. The language is at the same time enigmatic and transparent. Dobreer writes: “This poem is for you. / You are the sanctuary of these words.” As readers, we have no escape; words and bones become of the same matter, we see ourselves in the inner lake of this luminous book.” — Mariano Zaro
