Wind of Our Going, The
Patricia Goedicke

Limited quantity available

This generous collection of poems rings with the spirit of a serious and gifted artist. At a time when many poets mumble, Goedicke offers us a poetry rich in sound, in interplay of vowel and consonant, expressed in the rhythms of grief and jubilation, wit and sincerity.
