Come inside and meet a woman who despite the many personal tragedies throughout her life, grew to become one of the most beloved poets of our time!




"Her images are precise and true to life, and they reflect her own sharp wit and moral sense." (poets.org)



“And then, also, her poems were very moving, and full of feeling,
full of a way of looking at the world that was both very precise, but also not pompous, questioning, rather than giving answers to what she saw”

Lloyd Schwartz, in an interview with Jeffrey Brown.
