Dung Beetle; Be kind to me, a mess. I represent persistence - in the dirty thing; things larger than me; I do not fear. Whatever you think, or like - I live. Oh, marvell Pushing up the hill - rolling around. I feel myself at work. You are larger than I think, and that is very comforting to me. Set in a castle and on its grounds in Brittany, The Little Field of Self is one long poem comprised of individual poems that articulate the essence of devotion and the conflict within the devoted. With surprising inventiveness and technical skill, and without ornamentation, self-consciousness, or self-display, Doreen Gildroy has forged an original poetic style that renders inner being authentically and convincingly.

Industry Reviews

"The Phoenix Poets list contains a number of poets currently on my list of favorites. This is a strong, vital series which has given voice to some of the best voices in American poetry today." - Billy Collins
