Editorial Reviews


"Marilyn Krysl has found balance in places shaken by deprivation and injury. This is a beautiful book of poetry, not because it is lyrical (though it is), but because it treats suffering with love. It embraces what devours us. It instructs us by example in the way that poetry can be centered, conscionable and intimate. I feel in this book the power of open eyes and open arms." --Marvin Bell

"Marilyn Krysl's poetry is funny, funky, tragic, brave, lyrical, humane, political, and full of surprises....She is still writing the liveliest sestinas in America." --Alicia Ostriker on Krysl's What We Have To Live With

Format: Paperback
WARSCAPE WITH LOVERS is one of my favorite books of poetry. Each poem is a gem--reflecting the author's deep empathy for humanity while revealing sometimes shocking and horrifying crimes against civilians and families in wartorn nations. Marilyn Krysl, in addition to her writing, is a peace activist, and her desire to show the senselessness of war is apparent in each poem. Beyond the political, her works are also incredibly beautiful--sensual, lyrical, at times humorous, always unforgettable. Some of my favorite poems were written about Krysl's work with Mother Teresa's Calcutta clinic for the dying. They are breathtaking works of art as Krysl gives dignity to even the poorest of the poor, and makes vivid the nuns whose work inspires her. This is not a religious book, but it does transcend the normal boundaries between the physical and spiritual world. For creative writers, I especially recommend this book, as its crystalline lyricism and precise imagery is indeed inspirational and something we all can aspire to.
