What Love Comes to free pdf "A collection of poems that give rich drama to ordinary experience, deepening our sense of what it means to be human."Pulitzer Prize finalist citation"There is a broad, powerful streak of independenceeven disobediencethat runs through Stone's writing and has inspired a great number of women after her.""Guardian"Finalist for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize, this retrospective of Ruth Stone's poetry combines the best work from twelve previous volumes with an abundance of new poems. This comprehensive selection includes early formal lyrics, fierce political poems, and meditations on her husband's suicide and her own blindness. As Sharon Olds says in her foreword, "A Ruth Stone poem feels alive in the handsardent, independent, restless." "What Love Comes To" is a necessary collection from an American original."Can it be thatmemory is useless, like a torn webhanging in the wind?Sometimes it billowsout, a full high gauze like a canopy.But the air passesthrough the rentsand it falls again and flapsshapelesslike the ghost rag that it ishanging at the windowof an empty room."Ruth Stone is the author of twelve books of poetry. Among her many awards are the National Book Award, the National Book Critics Circle Award, the Eric Mathieu King Award, a Whiting Award, and she was a finalist for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize. She taught creative writing at many universities, finally settling at SUNY Binghamton. She lives in Vermont."
