Denise Levertov: Selected Poems

Author(s): Denise Levertov


Culled from two dozen poetry books, and drawing from six decades of her writing life,The Selected Poems of Denise Levertov offers a chronological overview of her great body of work. It is splendid and impressive to have at last a clear, unobstructed view of her ground-breaking poetry--the work of a poet who, as Kenneth Rexroth put it, "more than anyone, led the redirection of American the mainstream of world literature." Described byPublishers Weekly as "at once as intimate as Creeley and as visionary as Duncan," Levertov was lauded as "one of the indispensable poets of our language, one of those few writers to whom it is necessary to pay attention" byThe Malahat Review. No poet is more overdue for a single accessible volume; no career could be better to have within easy reach.
