Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In 1998, Marie Ponsot was awarded the National Book Critics Circle Award for poetry, confirming the praise that has been bestowed on her by critics and peers--among them Eavan Boland and Carolyn Kizer (who are quoted on the back of the book jacket) and Amy Clampitt, who had this to say of Ponsot's last book: "She is marvelously attuned to the visual and to the audible. She is no less precisely a geographer of the interior life, above all the experience of being a woman."

Synopsis:

A book of lyrics by a woman who now must be described as a major figure in American poetry, Marie Ponsot's witty, astringent, fiercely intelligent and marvellously wise poems are like nothing else we have in this field.

About the Author

Marie Ponsot's first book of poems was True Minds; later books are Admit Impediment and The Green Dark. She is a native New Yorker who has enjoyed teaching in graduate programs at Queens College, Beijing United University, the Poetry Center of the YMHA, and Columbia University. Among her awards are a National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing grant, the Delmore Schwartz Memorial Prize, and the Shaughnessy Medal of the Modern Language Association.
