Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Culled from two dozen poetry books, and drawing from six decades of her writing life, Denise Levertov's Selected Poems offers a chronological overview of her great body of work. It is splendid and impressive to have at last a clear, unobstructed view of her ground-breaking poetry — "the work of a poet who, as Kenneth Rexroth put it, "more than anyone, led the redirection of American poetry...to the mainstream of world literature."

Described by Publishers Weekly as "at once as intimate as Creeley and as visionary as Duncan," Levertov was lauded as "one of the indispensable poets of our language, one of those few writers to whom it is necessary to pay attention" by The Malahat Review. No poet is more overdue for a single accessible volume; no career could be better to have within easy reach.

Review:

"A blessing from the vast world of American poetry....Denise Levertov provided a sacred voice in each of her poems." Bloomsbury Review

Review:

"Her work was, and is, a brave gift to us all." Mary Oliver

Synopsis:

Denise Levertov's delivers in a single accessible volume "one of the essential poets of our time" ().
