Like a Beggar
Ellen Bass

Ellen Bass brings a deft touch as she continues her ongoing interrogations of crucial moral issues of our times, while simultaneously delighting in endearing human absurdities. From the start of Like a Beggar, Bass asks her readers to relax, even though "bad things are going to happen," because the "bad" gets mined for all manner of goodness.

For Like a Beggar, Ellen Bass

"Her words are nostalgic, vivid, and visceral. …Bass arrives at the truth of human carnality rooted in the extraordinary need and promise of the individual. By the end of the collection [Like a Beggar]…it becomes lucidly clear that Bass is not only a poet but also a philosopher and a storyteller." —Booklist
