Product Details

Praise

“A capacious and ambitious collection . . . Salter’s formal prowess is on display, as is her rueful wisdom, her vivid eye and memory for detail, and her ability to collapse time.” —Rachel Hadas, Los Angeles Review of Books

“Unforgettable . . . These are poems of a woman passionately living her life . . . At once erudite and spontaneous, serious and lighthearted.” —Laverne Firth, New York Journal of Books

“Smart, quirky, and offbeat . . . A lively mix of wit and imagination . . . In The Surveyors, [Salter] showcases her impeccable form, her lines as tight and sharp as rapiers . . . A poetry collection to cherish.” —Scott Neuffer, Shelf Awareness

“Essential not only for Salter’s fans but for readers of poetry in general . . . Salter has been working with quiet excellence as a poet since the publication of her first collection in 1985. For all that, she wears her knowledge lightly . . . She is superbly skilled in the old appurtenances of meter and rhyme, deploying coincidences of rhythm and sound that only rereading discloses—but her ease extends to her freer lyric style as well . . . Salter provides sane and long-lasting rewards. Library Journal (starred review)
