Poetry. "[A] confident, mystical, expansive project"--Publishers Weekly. "[D]azzling and timeless . . . focus is so unwaveringly aimed toward the transcendent--not God, but the beloved--that we seem to slip into a less cluttered time"--The Virginia Quarterly Review, "Editor's Choice." Gregory Orr continues his acclaimed project on the "beloved" with a lyrical sequence about the joys and hungers of being fully engaged in life. Through concise, perfectly formed poems, he wakes us to the ecstatic possibilities of recognizing and risking love. Mary Oliver has called this project "gorgeous," and said that he "speaks of the events that have no larger or more important rival in our lives--of our love and our loving."
