Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here is a landmark collection celebrating the remarkable range of Maxine Kumin, one of America's greatest living poets. Where I Live gathers poems from five previous books, together with twenty-three new poems that pay homage to Kumin's farm life and also to poets of the past.

from "The Taste of Apple"
     I could hardly see as he hoisted the great swaying body aloft
     and bore it across the road to the hole and in the cold dark I poured
     a libation of apple juice for the earth to welcome his corpse--
     some drops spilled on his chestnut flank and some dribbled
     on his cheek and splashed onto his yellow teeth as he lay
     deep on one side and my hand shook--I could hardly see--
     rocking my grief back and forth over this kind death
     the taste of apple wasting in his mouth.

Synopsis:

"The power that Kumin draws from and brings to literature is potent and seemingly inexhaustible."--Booklist
