Abstract:

"C.D. Wright, one of America's most compelling and idiosyncratic poets, has, over several decades, developed an unmistakable voice and penetrating vision. As Publishers Weekly noted in a starred review of her last collection, "Wright gets better with each book, expanding the reach of her art; it seems it could take in anything."

Deeply personal and politically ferocious, Rising, Falling, Hovering addresses, as Wright has said elsewhere, "the commonly felt crises of [our] times"--Illegal immigration and the specific consequences of empire to the challenges of parenting and the honesty required of human relationships."--pub. desc.
