About this title

Synopsis:

Twice nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in poetry, Clifton extends her already formidable powers of revelation with these new poems. Her song springs almost spontaneously from her imagination to stitch surreality with concrete imagery drawn from temporal reality, revealing an essential mystery and wisdom from within.
