About this title


79 page trade paperback book, winner of the 1986 Morse Poetry Prize. Composed in Weiss by Eastern Typsetting Company. Printed and Bound at the Alpine Press. The paper is Warren's No. 66 Antique, an acid-free sheet.

From Library Journal:

Thompson's poetry clarifies the meanings of love"let's/ give it a name, savage/ and serene, and call love/ marriage out of season." Sensitive to fragile human associations, she registers "the cumulative/ pain of love that goes/ untended for years" and depicts those autumnal moments when we doubt ourselvesa funeral, the passing of girlish dreams, even birthdaysfor what are they "but the impulse to charge each shadow/ with a humid significance?" Here, Thompson gives us a tender family portrait of those whom her imagination embraces, "faces forever within my reach." Recommended. Frank Allen, Assoc. Dean, Continuing Education, Allentown Coll., Center Valley, Pa.
