Description

Winner of the 2014 National Book Award for Poetry

A luminous, seductive new collection from the “fearless” (The New York Times) Pulitzer Prize-winning poet

Louise Glück is likely one of the finest American poets at work lately. Her Poems 1962-2012was hailed as “a major event in this country’s literature” in the pages of The New York Times. Each and every new collection is at once a deepening and a revelation.Faithful and Virtuous Night is no exception.
You enter the world of this spellbinding book through one of its many dreamlike portals, and every time you enter it is the same place but it has been arranged another way. You were a woman. You were a man. It is a story of adventure, an encounter with the unknown, a knight’s undaunted journey into the kingdom of death; It is a story of the world you’ve all the time known, that first primer where “on page three a dog gave the impression, on page five a ball” and Each and every familiar facet has been made to shimmer like the contours of a dream, “the dog float[ing] into the sky to enroll in the ball.” Faithful and Virtuous Nighttells a single story but the parts are mutable, the great sweep of its narrative mysterious and fateful, heartbreaking and charged with wonder.
