Poetry. Deborah Tall's final collection is a remarkable volume by a poet and nonfiction writer at the peak of her powers. Eavan Boland has called it "an essential collection," and Mary Ruefle says the poems have "not what is to be expected — hints of cessation — but an overwhelming sense of blossoming."
Deborah Tall (1951-2006) is the author of four previous collections of poems (most recently Summons, 2000, from Sarabande Books) and three books of nonfiction (A Family of Strangers, 2006, also from Sarabande). She taught at Hobart and William Smith Colleges, where she edited Seneca Review and helped name and promulgate the Lyric Essay.Author City: GENEVA, NY USA
