Description

A major career-spanning collection from the inimitable Nobel Prize-winning poet For the past fifty years, Louise Gl ck has been a major force in modern poetry, distinguished as much for the restless intelligence, wit and intimacy of her poetic voice as for her development of a particular form- the book-length sequence of poems. This volume brings together the twelve collections Gl ck has published to date, offering readers the opportunity to become immersed in the artistry and vision of one of the world's greatest living poets. From the allegories of The Wild Iris to the myth-making of Averno ; the oneiric landscapes of The House on Marshland to the questing of Faithful and Virtuous Night - each of Gl ck's collections looks upon the events of an ordinary life and finds within them scope for the transcendent; each wields its archetypes to puncture the illusions of the self. Across her work, elements are reiterated but endlessly transfigured - Persephone, a copper beech, a mother and father and sister, a garden, a husband and son, a horse, a dog, a field on fire, a mountain. Taken together, the effect is like a shifting landscape seen from above, at once familiar and unspeakably profound.

Critic Reviews

“It is difficult to think of another living poet whose voice contains so much electrifying undercurrent , whose rhythms are under such control, but whose work is also so exposed and urgent .”
