Description

"Here is the mature work of a poet who has always managed to delight-but who now demands something more of us. He asks us to enter the twenty-first century with open eyes: attentive to the past, eager for the future, naming what we love."-Judith Kitchen, Georgia Review

Review quote

"Behind Stephen Dunn's obsession with what he calls the ordinary lies an immensely complicated and delicate search for understanding and- I think- for peace... He is a poet of wisdom, and he is a healer and a teacher... The music is perfect as the art is hidden, and some of the poems-'Turning Fifty,' for example-are unbearably beautiful. He is a magnificent poet." -- Gerald Stern
