To witness the maturation of a poet over time is one of the great pleasures of reading. Here Ellen Bryant Voigt gives us that narrative distilled and amplified, arranging selections from six previous volumes to culminate in transcendent recent poems.
"Genius. Voigt is a poet of knowledge, and knowledge in the living, messy world." Robert Pinsky, Washington Post Book World "Voigt is a seasoned poet in full confident stride." Sven Birkerts, The New York Times Book Review"
