Overview

Praise for MY BODY: "Over the decades of writing, Joan Larkin has proved her mastery, whether the poem is mythic, elegaic, or biographical. Her honesty is overwhelming....She is a poet of compassion and pity."—Gerald Stern

"Deft, probling language surges in these poems, to the music of free verse, metric invention, high rhetoric, & demonic wit."—Marie Ponsot

"Death from AIDS, family deaths, a suicide--dark subjects deftly and honorably portrayed."—Maxine Kumin

What People are Saying About This

"Joan Larkin knows how to write a crown of sonnets so vividly revelatory that it gave this reader goosebumps. Death from AIDS, family deaths, a suicide-dark subjects deftly and honorably portrayed."--(Maxine Kumin)
