A gem of a book.One of America's foremost contemporary poets explains her craft.The essence of her success as a poet is mirrored in this prose work. Sixteen essays encompass subjects from the specific ,such as a commentary on the work of T.S.Eliot,to the abstract as in a chapter on the beauty of brevity and the need for periods of silence. Language is her tool.Words are crafted in precise formation,phrases,sentences and paragraphs organically evolve with nothing redundant to her argument.
This isn't didactic writing but a gentle exploration of the landscape of the life of a poet or a person aspiring to be one. Don't miss this book.The English Language is indebted.
