Book Overview

Praise for Rita Dove

Through works that blend beauty, lyricism, critique, and politics, Ms. Dove has illuminated American poetry and literature. --Barack Obama, National Medal of Arts commendation

Few contemporary poets are this capacious, this capable, this serious, and this pleasurable to read. The lyric beauty of Dove's poems makes them unforgettable; their deep knowledge of history and its consequences makes them permanent. --Craig Morgan Teicher, Los Angeles Times

There are so many casual pleasures in Ms. Dove's poetry that the precision and dexterity in her work--the darkness, too--can catch you unawares. [Her] poems have earthiness, originality, power and range. Despair and loss are among her central themes, but so is the hunt for bedrock human pleasures. --Dwight Garner, New York Times

One of the nation's most respected literary figures. [A] writer who masterfully balances narrative and poetic finesse. Dove has often been praised, rightly so, for making all of this look easy. --Elizabeth Lund, Washington Post

Dove's poems. all display a crystalline sound and composition. They read as if they were always meant to be. --Barbara Berman, The Rumpus

Rita Dove has planed away unnecessary matter: pure shapes, her poems exhibit the thrift that Yeats called the sign of a perfected manner. --Helen Vendler, New York Review of Books
