Acerca de


Besides being a pulitzer prize-winning poet and a critically acclaimed short story writer, maxine kumin is now recognized as a superb essayist since publication of in deep i 1987. This attention should bring her even more readers for this new collection of poetry, which has the same sharp edge, as well as the lyricism and expressive grace, that has characterised all her remarkable work.

From Publishers Weekly:

In her ninth volume of poetry, Kumin warns of impending eco-catastrophe and summons up nurturing, conservationist instincts that might yet save us. She observes the rituals of Antarctic birds, warns reindeer against eating radioactive wastes and pens heartbreaking lyrics on the endangered manatee, trumpeter swan, white fox. Occasional and autobiographical poems in this collection carry over the theme of our disrupted relationship with nature. Kumin pays homage to vegetarian George Bernard Shaw and to Georgia O'Keeffe. Alert, conversational, ever-questioning, she muses on a Cape Canaveral shuttle launch, middle age, the possibility of an afterlife, the technology that may destroy us. In travelogue-poems she searches for her roots in Salzburg, Austria, "for some thin line of comfort that binds us." One long, notably candid piece, "Marianne, My Mother, and Me," traces changes in America's mindset over seven decades through the intertwined destinies of poet Marianne Moore and Kumin's mother.
