First Cities by Marilyn Hacker

Book Description

The wonder of Marilyn Hacker's that she insists upon the rawness of experience and the metamorphosis of form with equal fervor and makes them both speak with the same voice. The result, again and again, is a poem of intense intimacy, beauty and authority."-W. S. Merwin
