Handsome edition of a great selection of poetry! Jul 17, 2007
I was lucky to get my hands on an advanced copy of Astonishments. It's really a handsome book with a large selection of very interesting poems. I highly recommend for anyone interested in poetry. It also makes an elegant gift with it's hard cover, meaty substance, interesting variety of writing styles (the selection includes fragments from her notebooks) and nice quality paper. Plus, the cover art looks good on your coffee table.
