Editorial Reviews

"A radiant and passionate collection.""-- New York times Book Review""Hirshfield's verbal power lies in a stunning physicality and the seductively rich music that such physicality engenders . . .[She] writes for readers who have lived a little--that is to say, a lot; who have lost, and grieved, and know how painful the capacity to love can be.""-- Hungry Mind Review""Deeply grounded in nature and the everyday, these attentive, imagistically precise, celebratory poems reveal the interconnections between interior and exterior worlds.""-- Women's Review of Books"
