Evening train by Denise Levertov( Book )
19 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 908 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
Life in the forest by Denise Levertov( Book )
10 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 798 libraries worldwide
Poems, 1960-1967 by Denise Levertov( Book )
14 editions published between 1966 and 2007 in English and Undetermined and held by 795 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 )
26 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and German and held by 760 libraries worldwide
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."

Tesserae : memories & suppositions by Denise Levertov( Book )
9 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in English and held by 28 libraries worldwide
Tesserae, the small individual pieces of glass or stone that make up a mosaic, is an apt title for this series of memoirs by Denise Levertov. Rather than being a completed autobiography, these collected memoirs are, for the author, fragments of an unfinished mosaic. Each of the twenty-seven pieces of Tesserae explores a memory vital to Levertov's life; each is complete in itself and set here chronologically. And, as in any good mosaic, each piece reflects at different angles creating a play of light which gives this self-portrait its living complexity
Poems 1968-1972 by Denise Levertov( Book )
17 editions published between 1987 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 23 libraries worldwide
Testifying to Levertov's growing strength and technical mastery as a poet, Poems 1968-1972 also affirms the clarity of her vision in its resistance to the Vietnam War and its "opposition to the whole system of insane greed of which war is only the inevitable expression."
The letters of Robert Duncan and Denise Levertov by Robert Duncan( Book )
7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 20 libraries worldwide
"This volume presents the complete correspondence between two of the most important and influential American poets of the postwar period. The almost 500 letters range widely over the poerty scene and the issues that made the period so lively and productive. But what gives the exchange its special personal and literary resonance is the sense of spiritual affinity and shared conviction about the power of the visionary imagination. Duncan and Levertov explore these matters in rich detail until, under the stress of dealing with the Vietnam War in poetry, they discover deep-seated differences in the religious and ethical convictions underlying their politics and poetic stance. The issues that drew them together and those that drove them apart create a powerful personal drama with far-reaching historical and cultural significance. The editors have provided a critical introduction, full notes, a chronology, and a glossary of names."--Back cover
