Product Details

Praise

"Remarkable . . . a poet of dramatic force." —The New York Review of Books

"Consistently accomplished . . . Dove’s is a brilliant mind that seeks for itself the widest possible play, an ever-expanding range of reference, the most acute distinctions, and the most subtle shadings of meaning. . . . Her is a major career." –Arnold Rampersad, Callaloo

"Dove’s poems, rich with elegant phrasing and Southern spice, blast tradition by pulling readers into other lives and then dazzle them with an often startling mastery of language." —Boston Globe

"Rita Dove . . . is a devoted and subtle storyteller [whose] gifts are evoking, and sometimes exalting, the everyday moments we live by but may neglect or forget, the music of her words issuing a message of uncanny integrity and calm.  Though often writing of private experience (mothering, mourning death, watching rain), she never seems to lose sight of the world beyond." —Newsweek
