Abstract:

"Pamela White Hadas has now selected the best of her published work and combined it with poems never before collected. Self-Evidence contains legendary, mythic, historical, and imaginary characters - Lilith, Pocahontas, Simone Weil, the wives of Watergate, a circus performer, and others. With playful originality and virtuoso voicing, Hadas weaves tapestries of women's loves and labors. Perhaps uniquely in our time, she contrasts a spareness of autobiographical detail with an unusual intimacy of tone. Hadas's literary inventiveness is far-ranging, entertaining, and eclectic - an artistic accomplishment Howard Nemerov called "odd, quirky, humorous and exact.""--BOOK JACKET.
