From "The Cloak" by Denise Levertov
And I walked naked
from the beginning
poems . . .
Eyes looking out,
a longing silent at song's core.
I have been reading The Collected Poems of Denise Levertov for myself and for a review, a 1000 page book giving a panoramic view of the poet's career as a writer. The book is due out in November from New Directions. To help keep track of what was going on in her life in relation to her writing, I searched for and then created this chronology as a guide to myself and others. I'm good at this nuts and bolts kind of research and use of the internet to share it. So here you have her basic chronology with a link to all of the books she wrote. Two biographies came out ths year. I find her lyric and sonic poetry and prose something of real elegance and meaning. I share this with you here.
