Product Description:

Mark Doty's Fire to Fire collects the best of his seven books of poetry, along with a generous selection of new work. His signature style encompasses both the plainspoken and the artfully wrought, as one of contemporary American poetry's most lauded, recognizable voices speaks to the crises and possibilities of our time.

Review:

."..showcases Doty's abiding fondness for examining the human condition"--Washington Post Book World

"Doty is terrifically precise as he inspects time's wreckage...The rhythm of his lines, its syntactical genius, propels us down the page, stopping time when necessary, making the familiar...exotic."--Dallas Morning News

"Doty's facility with his chosen form...is so natural that the craft in his work is all but invisible; he makes the damnably difficult look deceptively simple."--Booklist

"[Doty] uses language as a way to highlight a moment, elevate it, and unearth hidden depth and meaning...Striking imagery and a powerful imagination are two of his best tools..."--Christian Science Monitor

"Doty is always searching for beauty in a world that can be tragic or simply mundane."--Newsday

"Mark Doty still finds wonder in a world of confusion and hardships...a much-needed book of new and selected older poems by Doty."--Time Out New York

"If words this moving do not constitute great poetry, I'd like to know what does."--Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

"Doty displays a gift for interweaving arresting image with tender narrative."--Slate

"FIRE TO FIRE should solidify Doty's position as a star of contemporary American poetry...The poems combine close attention to the fragile, contingent things of the world with the constant, almost unavoidable chance of transcendence."--Publishers Weekly (Boxed Signature Review by Reginald Shepherd)
