Product Description


Poems that move me in a way that I don't really think I have experienced since I first read Rilke at 16 or 17. What a superb poet she is, and what a range of original sensibility, what private music, in the less well-worn emotions. --Nadine Gordimer

Schnackenberg has turned her erudition, technical mastery and objectivity to extraordinary account, and has set wide new sights for poets of her generation. She has cracked open the lyric of personal anecdote and set it in the light of history. --Rosanna Warren, The New Republic

Profound, sweeping, emotional... One thinks of Blake's insight, "Eternity is in love with the productions of time". --Stephen Yenser, The Yale Review
