Synopsis: First edition. 1985 Walt Whitman Award. Compliments card from Academy of American Poets laid in. Fine in dust jacket. x , 54 pages. cloth-backed boards, dust jacket.. 8vo..

From Library Journal: Bindweed was chosen by Anthony Hecht as the 1985 winner of the Walt Whitman Award. These 24 poems, set mostly in the natural world, seem all cool surfaces; but the tension between what is and isn't said is almost palpable. Balk's best poems are like rooms "draped" by silence, where even the slightest sounds reverberate with what's absent. Elegaic in tone, her verse is about what's missing, about loss: "His absence is a gouge in the snow/ Scooped between the spruce trees." Anguish is counterbalanced by Balk's remarkable attention to detail, precise diction, and restraint: "He pulls you out/ and yanks out your bones. One by one, he hollows/ each bone out, whittling the longest one/ into a flute. He presses his mouth against you." Highly recommended. Robert Hudzik, P.L. of Cincinnati & Hamilton Cty.

Book Description MacMillan Publishing Company, Incorporated, New York, 1986. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. Marfree, acidfree 1stEd; not written-in, underlined, club, remainder or ex-library. F/Fine. Slate undented paperboard over beige 1/4 cloth; Darlene Barbaria designed type jacket is unclipped. Mail SAMEDAY! From Andy Brumer -The New York Times Book Rev: {This work} shows some of the awkwardness and tentativeness characteristic of younger poets, but it also introduces an artist resonant with talent. A buoyant optimism runs through 'Elegy, ' a bizarre poem about an airplane that crashes one March in a snowy mountain region. The alternation between documentary reportage of the disaster and the suspenseful unfolding of the narrative makes for a wonderfully fresh and novel poem. The range of Ms. Balk's poetry is impressive, but it can also be a bit distracting. One cannot help wondering just how strong her work will be when she hones her themes and styles and perfects them. ; 80 pages. Seller Inventory # 5046
