About the Author
Carolyn Forché is director of the Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice at Georgetown University. Her other books of poetry include The Country Between Us, The Angel of History, and Blue Hour.
"Carolyn Forché's poems give an illusion of artlessness because they spring fromthe simplest and deepest human feelings, from an earthling's awareness of the systematic pulse of creation. The poems tell us she is at home any place under the stars, wherever there are fields or mountains, lakes or rivers, persons who stir her atavistic bond-sense."--Stanley Kunitz
