Reviews

"Dana Greene's compulsively readable biography of Jane Kenyon tells the poignant story of the poet's life, her development and career as a writer, and her long marriage to and partnership with poet Donald Hall. Overshadowed for many years, in life and after her death, by her more famous husband, Kenyon emerges in Greene's narrative as a fiercely independent and gifted artist in her own right. Greene takes pains to illuminate the complex dynamics of their relationship and to showcase the quiet power and beauty of Jane Kenyon's work, liberating Kenyon from the prevailing mythos that casts her as a lesser poet and enabling readers to see her anew. Jane Kenyon is a triumph."--Angela Alaimo O'Donnell, author of Flannery O'Connor: Fiction Fired by Faith
"A subtle, sensitive portrait of a 'complex, talented, and ambitious' woman. " --Kirkus
