Product Details


“A treasure trove . . . Ponsot is masterful with received forms—there are sonnets, sestinas and villanelles that are nothing short of gymnastic in their execution.” —Craig Morgan Teicher, Los Angeles Times

“Sixty years of wondrous verse from this award-winning but curiously underappreciated poet. Open to any page and you’ll stumble on lines you’ll never forget: ‘The meanest mistake / has a point to make.'” —Dotun Akintoye,

“Cements her reputation as a major American poet.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“We read such poets because we want to know how a poetic intelligence inhabits the world—or invents it.” —William Logan, The New York Times Book Review

“[Ponsot] holds the world to be good, to be glorious, and her poems help us attend to the miracle of consciousness and the startling nature of sensory experience.” —Anthony Domestico, Commonweal
