Summary

"Jane Williams’s Parts of the Main is her chemistry, abuzz in a murmuration of organic electrons that at once forms memory, then problems of translation – not solely of words, but in comprehending our modernity. These shape-shifting poems are an assignation of author to grace – with it, with her, we travel to Europe, her youth, to longings of elsewhere and an ever developing raison d’être." - Kent MacCarter 
"Jane Williams is a poet who leans out of the frame, who turns your ear if not your head. In Parts of the Main we are caught - sometimes caught out -by her ‘days of blue and banter’, ‘eyeball spoils of war’, trees ‘falling like the bones of oracles’. She writes the tender, the vulnerable, the unshowable. Sometimes there is a touch of the brogue. Jane Williams answers the question ‘Will poetry be enough?’ Convincingly." - Lizz Murphy

    What are you hiding behind your smile? If those empty bottles that line the walls of your room could speak, what tales would they spill? So much of your truth is buried beneath the lies you tell yourself. There’s a need to scream to the moon; there’s this urge to go out into the darkness of the night to purge. There are so many stories living inside your soul, you just want the opportunity to tell them. And when you can’t find the will to express what lives within your heart, these words will give you peace. These words will set you free.
