Synopsis
Denise Leverov is surely one of the most impressive of the younger poets writing in English today. Her earlier books were notable on several counts: technically, for her fine ear and her skill with free but controlled forms. In their substance, for the intensity and clarity of her very personal vision. These qualities persist in THE JACOB'S LADDER, and to them has been added - particularly in the powerful sequence on themes suggested by the Eichmann trial - a larger social concern, a more penetrating identification with the great problems of humanity. In addition, thirteen poems from the mow out-of-print earlier volume OVERLAND TO THE ISLANDS are included by courtesy of Jonathan Williams, the original publisher. "Denise Levertov has evolved a style of her own, clear, sparse, immediate and vibrant with a very special sensibility and completely feminine insight. She is the most subtly skillful poet of her generation, the most profound, the most modest, the most moving." Kenneth Rexroth, New York Times Book Review
