by Laura Kasischke
 

See All Formats & Editions


The poems in Fire & Flower are about the images that hold the world together in the mind of a child, a woman, and the mother she becomes. The metaphors used to describe their lives are mysterious and frightening, and they accumulate in this collection as a full expression of the awe that makes us all live.

Editorial Reviews

Michigan Quarterly Review
As a poetry of the entangled passionate and familial tragedies that poets in postwar America have opted to write into the public record, I have found no collection of poems more moving or profoundly aware or skilled with intensity and restraing than this one.
Harvard Review
"Kasischke's world?is a world in which grace and horror, beauty and carnage, tragedy and hilarity commingle."
