From the Inside Flap:

"Exquisite, polished, cerebral, and yet filled with womanly, workaday reflections, Hadas’s work reminds us that poetry is both celebration and a craft to be honed carefully."—Library Journal.

"The poems are urgent, contemplative, and finely wrought. In them, antiquity illuminates the present as Rachel Hadas finds in ordinary human acts ‘what never was and what is eternal.’" Grace Schulman, poetry editor of the Nation.

Laws is a capacious collection by one of America’s most renowned poets.

From "Compact"

If every gesture halves a hidden whole,
If every moment twins a hidden half,
Then my thumb clicking that pink plastic catch
(sweet whiff of powder; flash of tiny mirror)
opens not only the compact but also
the first half of a parenthesis
stretching its arms out, longing to be closed.

About the Author:

Rachel Hadas is Board of Governors Professor of English at Rutgers University, Newark, where she has taught for more than two decades. She is the author of more than a dozen books of poetry, essays, and translations, including a recent book of poems, Indelible.
