“Levertov's master––more than mastery, because she is one of the originators––of contemporary poetic form, informed with a fierce, generous intelligence, can be frightening.” —Ursula Le Guin, Washington Post
Arranged in seven parts and culminating in the superb "The Showings: Lady Julian of Norwich," Breathing the Water draws the readers deep into spiritual domains––not in order to leave the world behind, but to reanimate our sometimes dormant love for it.
