From the title poem:Ampersandpink as dead shrimp, the unborn curls in its tide pool--seed pearlwhose mother lusters over irritant love its too late to dislodge-little anemone, shrinking from touch. So and holds separate what it most closely binds.Review:Ms. Gregers poems take place at the point of encounter between the mind and the world of matter. . . . And it is the resistance of the real and the increasing urgency the poet feels in trying to extinguish her solitude . . . that make these poems emotional.--The New York Times Book ReviewOriginally published in 1985.The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press.
