Description

Now available in paperback, the award-winning retrospective by Linda Gregg, "one of the best poets in America" (Gerald Stern)

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

“Linda Gregg is a visionary poet. The fact that this is not immediately apparent constitutes the power of these extraordinary poems, poems that have been accumulating with a quiet, slowburning majesty for nearly four decades.” —JAMES LONGENBACH, from the citation for the 2009 William Carlos Williams Award
