Why this poet has not been designated Poet Laureate is beyond me. I have yet to read a poem of hers I didn't like. Her word choices are always exactly right: precise, surprising and honest. I can't imagine getting tired of her poems.

From what I've read of her work, Ellen Bass and her poetry deserve to be categorized as legendary. When I first read this book, I was so impressed with the power conveyed therein that I instantly became a fan. It came as no surprise to later find out she won two Pulitzer Prizes for her writing. In an underrepresented and unappreciated medium that is currently wrestling to stay relevant in a postmodern pop-culture-obsessed artistic scene, Ellen Bass is one of the very, very few contemporary poets who has the strength and resonance of work to stand the test of time in the coming generations as having been an important voice with an equally strong message to preserve through the years. -Elijah Joon, author of TEMPORAL: a Novel of Consciousness & Time (Art House Essential Reading) and Psalms Amidst Lamentations: Poems (Art House Essential Reading)
