    Book details

This volume contains selections of work from five books by one of America's most acclaimed and most controversial poets. Marilyn Hacker's poems have been praised for their technical virtuosity, for their forthright feminism, political acuity, and equally unabashed eroticism. This book enables new readers to discover an important poet, others to reread and retrace the poet's progress from promise to maturity.

Marilyn Hacker is an essential American poet. In these poems elements of tone and theater find a balance which is witty and powerful all at once; which seems impossible but happens anyway. This is a poet of dazzling opposites. Her formal variety exists with a strong-willed vernacular; her lyric wryness with a determined narrative. These poems tell her story. They also honor the story of poetry in our time with their strength and purpose and their clear, unswerving gaze.--Eavan Boland
