The Selected Poems of Denise Levertov
Author: Denise Levertov
Editor: Paul Lacey
Introduction: Robert Creeley
Publisher: New Directions (2003)
Culled from two dozen poetry books, and drawing from six decades of her writing life, The Selected Poems of Denise Levertov offers a chronological overview of her great body of work. It is splendid and impressive to have at last a clear, unobstructed view of her ground-breaking poetry―the work of a poet who, as Kenneth Rexroth put it, "more than anyone, led the redirection of American poetry . . . to the mainstream of world literature."
