Abstract:

Showcasing a poetic career spanning 65 years, this volume demonstrates the strength of Boyle's commitment to a political aesthetic, one that combines a wealth of nuanced knowledge with a genuine liberal spirit. Boyle adopts a number of different voices, often vernacular, setting off opposing viewpoints to fully convey the scope of her themes. Although always attuned to the myriad beauty of existence, the poet never loses sight of the plight of the disenfranchised and the oppressed. She also pays loving tribute to writers and friends who have influenced her along the way, William Carlos Williams and Marianne Moore among them. Boyle adopts a pretentiously baroque style at times, but more often she prefers to explore colloquial American speech in all its variety. ISBN 1-55659-038-5: $19.00.
