Book of Hours, The
Marianne Boruch

Inspired by the tradition of homemade prayer books popular during the Middle Ages, Marianne Boruch's The Book of Hours foregrounds the rich details of nature, which are both beautiful and ruthless. While investigating personal memory and issues of war, history, saints, god and godlessness, Boruch questions the nature of poetry itself. Within the poems are numerous, and numinous, voices.

For Book of Hours, The, Marianne Boruch

"Boruch refuses to see more than there is in things— but her patience, her willingness to wait for the film of familiarity to slip, allows her to see what is there with a jeweler's sense of facet and flaw."— Poetry

"Marianne Boruch's work has the wonderful, commanding power of true attention."—The Washington Post
