Jennings, a Traditionalist known for subtle lyric poetry and her mastery of form, was recognized with the Somerset Maugham Award for her second book 'A Way of Looking,' affording her the means to travel to Rome for a revelatory three months. This collection of poems, most written during or shortly following her time in Italy, freely seeks a range of personal emotions in the passing world.
