Tedi López Mills is in the midst of an ongoing conversation. To read her poetry is to enter the river of philosophy in one of its clearer channels. López Mills’ poetry engages the ideas and furthers the inquiries of her sharpest contemporaries and brightest forebears. These poems hold in trembling balance the tension between space and time, time and being, being and been. They invoke and asymptotically extend the eternal questions: who am I? who am I in relation to this world? what is this world in relation to God, or the idea of God? While Light Is Built houses some of the most important poems being written today. We have been invited in to the contemplation and conversation of Tedi López Mills. It is for us to enter and respond.
