9781882413041: Why the Sun Cannot Set: New & Selected Poems (Pas Research Paper)

"Mary Ferrari's poetry has the unexpectedness of life:flashes of humour in the midst of drama, invasion of public events into privacy, of sensuality into the cerebral. Her temporary relocation to South Africa has not been merely material but also perceptual. Her imagery has brought us a new way of seeing our landscape and often our humanscape, as well. What she has written in our country shows a sensibility capable of entering fully the suffering and spirit of resistance around her. " - Nadine Gordimer "These poems aren't general in their warmth and generosity but quite the opposite: they give concrete examples of experience-happy and unhappy-they are memorably precise. Mary Ferrari is a wonderful writer. " -Kenneth Koch
