The Hang-Glider's Daughter traces the development of an unabashedly lesbian feminist poet. This selection from two of her books and the presentation of new, uncollected poems reveals the poet's consistent grappling with life's deepest concerns. her dazzling displays of 'formal' verse, mellowed to a warm assured artistry, unravel our most intimate passions. A tribute to a major poet.
