Overview

Bringing Together: Uncollected Early Poems, 1958-1988 by Maxine Kumin

"The power that Kumin draws from and brings to literature is potent and seemingly inexhaustible."—Booklist
Collected here for the first time, these early poems inhabit Kumin's own "sneakstorm time," a space one step to the side, where quiet introspection examines the pain of loss, the idealism of youth, and the endurance of the natural world. Her characteristic earthy wisdom snaps with intensity, offering a refreshing perspective on everyday experiences. "New England farm life, modern American history, Jewish identity and a quietly vibrant feminist consciousness provide themes for this gathering from a long and distinguished career."—Publishers Weekly.
