Annie Finch's wide reputation precedes her. Her first full book of poems attracted the notice and glowing approval of Robert Pinsky, Carolyn Kizer, the Bloomsbury Review and the Washington Times. Her poems are resonating, musical celebrations of life. Through mastery of rhythm and poetic patterning, this wonderfully gifted poet liberates and illuminates the sacred in the mundane, and gives voice to the earth-centered spirituality of our era.
