Description:

The much anticipated volume of poems from acclaimed poet Lucie Brock-Broido--a pioneering collection that brings her work, and our understanding of the broken but beautiful world she inhabits, to a whole new level.In these stirring, long-lined poems, we meet a poet as gifted and dangerous as ever, a poet with an unflinching, ironic, and unique vision.  As Brock-Broido puts it, she has, by now, "contracted the habit of believing in the interior world."  Yet, despite the plaintive siren call of that interior, this most restless and powerful of American poets asserts: "I am of a fine mind to worship the visible world, the woo and pitch and sign of it."  And in this collection, she does just that, striking out through gorgeous vistas of the seeable and knowable, drawing us into a stunning new way of perceiving, both haunting and playful, where we experience fresh understandings of our great loves and our great foolishness, and the often invisible ways these things might move us, in the end, to "still have plenty heart."
