Product Description

Review

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

Gjertrud Schnackenberg was born in 1953 in Tacoma, Washington. Her retrospective Supernatural Love: Poems 1976-2000 (Bloodaxe Books, 2001) includes her four collections, Portraits and Elegies (1982), The Lamplit Answer (1985), A Gilded Lapse of Time (1995), and The Throne of Labdacus (2000), winner of the Los Angeles Times Book Prize for Poetry. Her latest collection is Heavenly Questions, winner of the Griffin Poetry Prize, published in hardback in the US by Farrar, Straus and Giroux in 2010 and by Bloodaxe in the UK 2011. She has won many other literary awards, including fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, the Rome Prize for Literature, and an Award in Literature from the American Academy for Arts and Letters.
