Description - Living Things by Anne Porter

Living Things contains all the poems in Porter's National Book Award Finalist collection, An Altogether Different Language, plus forty-four new works. David Shapiro writes in his foreword, 'Anne Porter's diction is as modest as that of William Carlos Williams or of a poet she nurtured as a houseguest for many years, James Schuyler. She has the quality of paying attention to ultimate reality that Fairfield Porter, who painted her so often alone and with their five children, told me should be the conclusion of every sermon. She is an American religious poet of stature.'
