    Book details

Included are selections from Hacker's first book, Presentation Piece (1974), the Lamont Poetry Selection of the Academy of American Poets and a National Book Award Winner; Separations (1976); Taking Notice (1980), which was claimed as an integral part of the burgeoning feminist and lesbian canon; Assumptions (1985), which explored the conundrums of gender, race, and identity in contemporary life; and Going Back to the River(1990), which received a Lambda Literary Award.

Marilyn Hacker's poetry passes loss through wit, and makes it sing. --Diane Middlebrook"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"
