Abstract:

In a career that has earned her accolades, honorary degrees, and awards from both fellow poets and everyday poetry lovers, the author has established herself as a writer who can entertain and challenge, inform and inspire. Sometimes controversial, sometimes ethereal, but always beautiful, her poems move readers of all hues and generations. With this volume she has collected poems that serve as a companion to her 1997 Love Poems. That book, romantic, bold, and erotic, expressed notions of love in ways that were delightful and unexpected. In the years that followed, the author experienced losses both public and private. A mother's passing, a sister's, too. A massacre on the campus at which she teaches. And just when it seemed life was spinning out of control, she rediscovered love, what she calls the antidote. Here romantic love, and all its manifestations, the physical touch, the emotional pull, the hungry heart, is distilled and presented in poetic form -- From book jacket.
