Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Galway Kinnell's Mortal Acts, Mortal Words, is one of my favorite books of poems ever. He writes with authenticity. He speaks in a human voice about a flawed, magnificent world. I gave to a poet friend for Christmas, who unfortunately was not persuaded. But I would give all my friends this book. And the recipient of the most recent gift may yet have a change of heart. Sometimes things seep in.
