About this title


Former New York State Poet Jane Cooper brings together work from four earlier books, along with eighteen previously unpublished poems. In a voice of unusual integrity Jane Cooper traces the arc of a life, from poems written out of the shadow of World War II, to haunting personal elegies, to poems that, with no loss of intimacy, engage history with passion and subtlety. Here are poems of love, loss, friendship, concern for the lives of women, the humor and "complex shame" of a white Southern heritage, the mysteries of art.

About the Author:

Jane Cooper is the recipient of numerous awards including the Lamont Award, the Shelley Award, the Maurice English Award, and an American Academy of Arts and Letters Award in Literature. She is also the author of Green Notebook, Winter Road, and Scaffolding: Selected Poems. She lives in New York City.
