ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
 
      Selected Poems is compiled from the best works in Jean Garrigue's eight
        published collections. Garrigue (1914-72) is recognized as a leading American
        poet of the fifties and sixties. Among her awards and honors were a Guggenheim
        fellowship and a National Institute of Arts and Letters grant.
      "A wildly gifted poet. . . . Garrigue was our one lyric poet who made
        ecstasy her home." --Stanley Kunitz
       "Her way with language was Mozartian, breathtaking in its ability to
        ring change after change on a theme, Mozartian bursts of language, never
        leaving the subject, enabling the eye to see clearly, while delighting
        the ear with sound." --Harvey Shapiro
      "A brilliant poet. Her idiom is modern, yet has a kind of Book of Hours
        simplicity." -- Robert Lowell
