Product description

Review

"A radiant and passionate collection.""-- New York times Book Review""Hirshfield's verbal power lies in a stunning physicality and the seductively rich music that such physicality engenders . . .[She] writes for readers who have lived a little--that is to say, a lot; who have lost, and grieved, and know how painful the capacity to love can be.""-- Hungry Mind Review""Deeply grounded in nature and the everyday, these attentive, imagistically precise, celebratory poems reveal the interconnections between interior and exterior worlds.""-- Women's Review of Books"

About the Author

The author of five previous poetry collections and a book of essays, Jane Hirshfield has been a finalist for both the National Book Critics Circle Award and England's T. S. Eliot Prize for Poetry, and she is the winner of the Poetry Center Book Award, the California Book Award, and fellowships from the Academy of American Poets, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Guggenheim and Rockefeller foundations. Her work has appeared in The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, The Nation, the Los Angeles Times, and multiple volumes of The Best American Poetry and Pushcart Prize anthologies.
