Synopsis

Evening Train, Denise Levertov's twenty-first collection, carries the extended pilgrimage of her poetry into stirring new territory... Luminous, epiphanic... Evening Train leaves us floating on the mysterious lightness...of Levertov's ecstatic faith...” — Tom Clark, San Francisco Chronicle

At her most moving and meditative, impressive and musical, Denise Levertov addresses in her poetry collection, Evening Train, the nature of faith and love, the imperiled beauty of the natural world, and the horrors of the Gulf War.
