Carolyn Kizer
Perspectives on Her Life & Work
Annie Finch, ed.; Johanna Keller, ed.; Candace McClelland, ed.

2001 • 232 pp. 6 x 9 1/2"

$28.00 Paperback, 978-0-9678856-5-0

Critical essays about the poet and her work, interviews with Kizer, and poems written in her honor. Kizer’s gifts are acknowledged in this book: her humor, her mythological scope, political awareness, satirical wit, feminism, craft, lyricism, her role in shaping literary institutions and her charisma. Carolyn Kizer is a celebration of the poetry itself, of the enduring work that places Kizer in the pantheon of living American poets.
