" In a just world, Otherwise-- beautifully designed by Graywolf-- would become a bestseller." -- Michael Dirda, "The Washington Post" "In a just world, Otherwise--beautifully designed by Graywolf--would become a bestseller." --Michael Dirda, "The Washington Post" In a just world, Otherwise--beautifully designed by Graywolf--would become a bestseller. "Michael Dirda, The Washington Post"" "In a just world, Otherwise--beautifully designed by Graywolf--would become a bestseller." --Michael Dirda, The Washington Post For "Otherwise: New & Selected Poems": "Her words, with their quiet, rapt force, their pensiveness and wit, come to us from natural speech, from the Bible and hymns, from which she derived the singular psalmlike music that is hers alone." --"New York Times Book Review" "Few poets are as flawlessly down-to-earth as Kenyon: her progress is natural, not affected or rushed. The volume is more than an opus; it is the documentary, the testimony, of a rich human life." --"Boston Book Review" "This book chronicles the uncertainty of living as culpable, temporary creatures, and catalogues 'anger, the inner/arsonist' as well as triumph. We have lost Kenyon, but 'God does not leave us/comfortless, so let evening come'; "Otherwise "is proof of that." --"The Nation" "Kenyon's poetry is honest and earnest, rich in imagery yet free of clutter. This collection is generous, cohesive and moving." --"Publishers Weekly," starred review "Personal, autobiographical lyric poetry is rarely this fine, this clear, this egoless, this moving." --"Booklist," starred review "One may also read these precise and limpid works simply for the beauty of their expression, for their insight into the life of a woman prey to depression, obsessed with absence and death, and highly reliant on the natural world as a source of consolation. These are poems of extreme tenderness. . . .
