In eight extraordinary volumes spanning five decades, Ellen Bryant Voigt has created a body of work distinguished by its formal precision, rigorous intelligence, and meticulous observation of nature, history, and domestic life. From the subtly evocative images of Claiming Kin (1976) to the mosaic of sonnets and voices conjuring a prescient narrative of the 1918 influenza pandemic in Kyrie (1995) to fierce encounters with mortality in the National Book Award finalist Shadow of Heaven (2002) and the propulsive inventions of Headwaters (2013), the evolution of Voigt's astonishing creative and technical mastery is on full display. This definitive collection showcases the brilliant career of "a quintessential American elegist" (Katy Didden, Kenyon Review).From "Apple Tree"
O my soul,
it is not a small thing,
to have made from three,
this one, this one life.
