Summary
A new collection of poems by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Wild Iris and Vita Nova stares mortality squarely in the face as she reflects on the vast mysteries of life and death. 20,000 first printing.
Amazon.com description: Product Description:

Louise Glück has long practiced poetry as a species of clairvoyance. She began as Cassandra, at a distance, in league with the immortal; to read her books sequentially is to chart the oracle's metamorphosis into unwilling vessel, reckless, mortal and crude. The Seven Ages is Glück's ninth book, her strangest and most bold. In it she stares down her own death, and, in so doing, forces endless superimpositions of the possible on the impossible -- an act that simultaneously defies and embraces the inevitable, and is, finally, mimetic. Over and over, at each wild leap or transformation, flames shoot up the reader's spine.
