New collected poems
With new poems from the past 25 years as well as works from the award-winning 1986 Collected Poems, this collection demonstrates Elizabeth Jennings's enduring poetic elegance and skill. It is an abidingly popular body of poetry that uses traditional forms with experimental vigor and explores the verse-essay, the extended sequence, the epistle, and the love elegy. The poet is attuned to the changes in language that is her medium in every sense.
