Amulet Songs: Poems Selected and New (Mary Burritt Christiansen Poetry Series)

Amulet Songs: Poems Selected and New (Mary Burritt Christiansen Poetry Series) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the time Lucile Adler began publishing poems in the 1950s in The New Yorker, The Nation, and The Southwest Review, she has been widely admired. Amulet Songs includes poems from her first four books (The Traveling Out, The Society of Anna, The Ripening Light, and The Pink Madonna) and her moving new work on the subject of old age.

"A mature and accomplished poet who has found an extraordinarily poignant way of accounting for the wisdom and dedication of a lifetime. . . . The range of her poems is at once touching, expansive, humorous, and resilient."--Ben Belitt, author of This Scribe, My Hand and translator of Five Decades, Poems 1925-1970, by Pablo Neruda

"Poems as hermetic and open as Georgia O'Keeffe's landscapes that haunt for the same reason, plain and mysterious, rich in their austerities. . . . A poet on her way, to be met and recognized again with joy as she travels out, this time further into the lives of women."--May Sarton, author of Journal of a Solitude and As We Are Now

"Great poetry draws attention to that which is greater than itself, testifying on behalf of our propensity for love, justice, or their opposites. Adler offers such a testimony."--Demetria Martínez, author of Breathing Between the Lines and Three Times a Woman

Synopsis:

Amulet Songs includes poems from Adler's first four books (The Traveling Out, The Society of Anna, The Ripening Light, and The Pink Madonna) and her moving new work on the subject of old age.
