Item description for Longing Distance by Sarah Hannah...

From a woman's perspective, the force of desire and the force of memory, the macro- and micro-cosmos, nature and art, the search for a guide and the disaster that comes when we find one, are among the themes Longing Distance takes on in carefully crafted free and formal-verse poems. Sarah Hannah pursues our struggle for perspective on love, loss, even our place in the universe, in a voice that's intelligent, wry and incontrovertibly contemporary.

Reviews - What do customers think about Longing Distance?

Stunning  Jul 27, 2007
Truly one of the most beautiful collections of poems to gift us in a long time. The skill in which Hannah goes underneath the skin of language, manipulates and elevates it rivals(and, in my opinion, sometimes surpasses)the present canonical works of our greatest female poets. A sleek river with a fierce riptide underneath, this work needs us to pay attention--for our own good. I am so grieved to know that after the release her next book, Inflorescence, there will be no more. Sadly, for us,she has achieved the distance she longed for.
Gourmet contemporary poetry  Jan 7, 2005
These poems are constructed as carefully as an old stone wall -- sturdy, compact, gorgeous, useful... and rich with sensations, feelings, stories that speak to the heart and mind. If you love and need both clarity of language and intensity of feeling, you will love these poems. Sarah Hannah obviously delights in finding just the right turn of phrase, and beautiful words. But the language always serves the texture and meaning of the narrative. Her poetic voice is often wistful, as the title suggests. But the work is full of sardonic humor, self-mockery and sharp, clear images that stick and walk with me. I stopped to breathe between poems.
