Synopsis

"Linda Pastan is one of America's truly fine poets working at the height of her powers." — Michael Collier, Baltimore Sun

This volume brings together new work along with poems gathered from nine previous collections. When Linda Pastan's first book was published in 1971, the Jerusalem Post wrote, she "in large measure fulfilled Emerson's dream — the revelation of ‘the miraculous in the common.' " Since then Pastan has continued to explore the complexities, passion, and dangers under the surfaces of ordinary life. "Some critics point to Emily Dickinson when citing Pastan's lapidary style and metaphysical wit, a comparison that does justice to either poet when Pastan is at her best." — Gettysburg Review  "Pastan's unfailing mastery of her medium holds the darkness firmly in check." — New York Times Book Review National Book Award finalist  Linda Pastan was Poet Laureate of Maryland from 1991 to 1993.
