Description

Worlds out of time still exist.
Worlds of achievement out of mind and remembering,
just as the poem lasts.
In the concert of being present.
—from "Arriving"

Praise For All of It Singing: New and Selected Poems

“The first retrospective collection by Linda Gregg,"one of the more impressive, generous, and wise of today's front-line poets.” —Library Journal

“Linda Gregg brings us back to poetry. She helps us see how we can once again engage the sublime and the tremendous, in our polluted and corrupt time. Her subject is loss and separation and the intense search for redemption, which she is able to realize through a profoundly honest, and moving, language. She is original and mysterious, one of the best poets in America.” —Gerald Stern
