The Ardors is the work of a brilliant thinker as well as a poet of profound emotional and religious feeling. Taking as its starting-point the word 'Pearl," she uses language to delve aggressively but with great elegance into the nature of the human soul, in both eartlhy and divine manifestations. Both of Kathleen Peirce's previous full-length collections have won major prizes.
