Evening train by Denise Levertov( Book )
12 editions published between 1992 and 1998 in English and Undetermined and held by 971 libraries worldwide
Evening Train, Denise Levertov's new collection of poetry, is her twenty-first book with New Directions and one of her best. It shows Levertov at her most moving and musical, impressive and meditative, addressing the nature of faith, the imperiled beauty of the natural world (her new home in the Northwest brings mountains, herons, eagles), the horrors of the Gulf War, the pain and tenderness of love. What is remarkable throughout is the precision of her craft and her presence of mind: "Levertov's gift for detail," as the Village Voice noted, "is matched by the way she can make yearnings and ideas seem almost physical, as if she held them in the palm of her hand." Welling up through these poems is longing: longing for peace, for the survival of her cherished earth, for love, for the experience of the divine which comes like "a strain of music heard/then lost, then heard again." Contemplative, personal, universal, the poems reveal in themselves depth after depth
To stay alive by Denise Levertov( Book )
11 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 964 libraries worldwide
Poems, 1960-1967 by Denise Levertov( Book )
16 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 868 libraries worldwide
The poet's concern for quotidian realities and eternal verities gives these poems substance meant to last, expressed in a style that is clear, concise, and intense... lyrical but spare, the lines speak of many things--marriage, rivers, the world that is not enough with us--and the faint sounds of biblical and other literary allusions show asensibility that has assimilated the great tradition with the urgencies of today

Sands of the well by Denise Levertov( Book )

In Primary Wonder, she writes: "And then / once more the quiet mystery / is present to me, the throng's clamor / recedes: the mystery / that there is anything, anything at all, / let alone cosmos, joy, memory, everything, / rather than void: and that O Lord, / Creator, Hallowed One, You still, / hour by hour sustain it."
