New York: Ecco Press, 1997. First Printing of the First Edition. A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. In these poems Jorie Graham approaches a number of numinous characters, each an embodiment of sexual, emotional, political or spiritual desire -- desire seeking its place in an age of betrayed values, where dreaming has been rubbed thin by reason, frayed by the speed of facts.
Error is explored as the heroic form of finding one's way--a purposeful wandering toward truth, a pilgrimage in which the heart's longing is guide. Lovers celebrate the body; angels deliver celestial warnings. Sacred and spiritual, celestial and corporeal, coexist. Item #26260
