About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Grace Notes: Poems.

Publisher: W. W. Norton, New York

Publication Date: 1989

Edition: First Printing of the First US Edition.


A Near Fine tight copy in a Fine bright unclipped dust jacket. Review Copy with author publicity photo laid-in. The title of the collection serves as an umbrella for the intimate concerns expressed in the forty-eight poems; in music, grace notes are those added to the basic melody, the embellishments that—if played or sung at the right moment with just the right touch—can break your heart. The word as talisman is another of Dove's concerns, and finally, in the section that most typifies the lilt of grace notes, Dove considers the embellishments below the melody of daily life.
