Abstract:

Becoming Light contains poems personally selected by Jong from her complete oeuvre of acclaimed published works poems of love, sex, witches, gods, and demons; word-songs brimming with wit, heart, bitterness, sorrow, and truth. From the earliest poetic musings of a brilliant young artist first trying out her wings to later works born of experience and maturity, unpublished before appearing in this collection, Jong's pure artistry shines like a beacon as she writes, fearlessly and passionately, about being a woman, about being alive. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erica Jong including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
