“The lyrical voices in Billone’s The Light Changes evoke and embody vibrant layers of radical tenderness and courage that are rarely achieved in contemporary poetry.” — Olaf Berwald
Amy Billone holds a BA in General Studies in the Humanities from the University of Chicago and an MA and PhD in Comparative Literature from Princeton University. Her book, 2007’s Little Songs: Women, Silence, and the Nineteenth Century is informed by her unique perspective as a woman poet. She also wrote the Introduction and Notes for the Barnes and Noble Classics edition of Peter Pan (2005).
Billone’s recent poetry collection The Light Changes (2013), which earned a starred review on Kirkus, invokes the biographical and creative worlds of Elizabeth Barret Browning, Sylvia Plath and Virginia Woolf as it opens up pathways toward light even in the most unimaginable darkness of our personal experiences and the times we inhabit today.
