Description
Now in paperback: the superb selection from Marge Piercy's nine most recent books, the heart of her mature poems.
This gathering of Piercy's poems is the first selected since Circles on the Water in 1982. These poems chart the milestone events and fierce passions of the poet's middle years: her Judaism, her deep connection with nature, her marriage, her cats, her politics, and in the face of the loss of time and people, her own legacy.

In 1990 she won the Golden Rose, the oldest poetry award in the country.
