Description


In her first book of collected work, prize-winning poet Linda Gregerson mines nearly forty years of poetry, bringing us a full range of her talents.

Ten new poems introduce Prodigal, followed by fifty poems, culled from Gregerson's five collections, that range broadlyin subject from class in America to our world's ravaged environment to the wonders of parenthood tothe intersection of science and art to the passion of the Roman gods, and beyond. This selection reinforces Gregerson's standing as one of poetry's mavens . . . whose poetics seek truth through the precise apprehension of the beautiful while never denying the importance of rationality (Chicago Tribune).A brilliant stylist, known for her formal experiments as well asher perfected lines, Gregerson is a poet of great vision. Here, the growth of her art and the breadth of her interests offer a snapshot of a major poet's intellect in the midst of her career.
