A reader-friendly miscellany of essays, appreciations, reviews, and conversations, published in newspapers and literary magazines over the past ten years, these are pieces that will resonate equally with the lay poetry lover and the specialist. This collection explores all aspects of a life in poetry: reading it, writing it, teaching it, editing it, publishing it, reviewing it.
