Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Her poems startle us over and over with their shapeliness, their humor, their youthfulness, their wild aptness, their strangeness, their sudden familiarity, the authority of their insights, the moral gulps they prompt, their fierce exactness of language and memory.”—Galway Kinnell on presenting the Wallace Stevens Award

In the Next Galaxy gives us the unflinching vision of a woman well into her ’80s, fully inhabiting body and mind.”—National Book Award Judges’ statement

“Compassionate, comic, feminist and horrified by injustice, Stone’s poems are composed with an accessible deftness.”—The Oregonian

Ruth Stone has earned nearly every major literary award for her poetry. She taught at many universities, finally settling at SUNY Binghamton. Today she lives in Vermont.

Synopsis:

Winner: National Book Award and Wallace Stevens Award. "A marvelous tribute to love and survival."--The New York Times

Synopsis:

Poetry. In this, her eighth collection of poems, Stone writes with a crackling intelligence from the vantage point of an aging and impoverished woman. Wise, sardonic, crafty, and misleadingly simple, Stone loves heavy themes but not heavy poems. She brings to her poems a passion for knowing how the world works, whether through science, politics, the erotic, or history. "Her poems startle us over and over with their shapeliness, their humor, their youthfulness, their wild aptness, their strangeness, their sudden familiarity, the authority of their insights, the moral gulps they prompt, their fierce exactness of language and memory"--Galway Kinnell.

Synopsis:

National Book Award Winner in Poetry, Stone startles readers with the fierce emotional power of an elder woman fully inhabiting body and mind.
