Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Boruch's superb instinct for the structure of free verse and her fine eye for daily life have won her national respect: this first outing since Poems: New and Selected (2004) confirms those strengths. Many of the poems here imitate the visual arts—one is titled Still Life; the poem Ladder Against a House aspires to a photograph, while Seven Aubades for Summer incorporates a daily record of outdoor scenes. Boruch's best moments combine disarming observation with abstraction and quiet humor: touring a zoo, she declares, In this saddest of worlds, think/ lunch! And an ocean of hope/ rides over us. Few readers will come away unimpressed by the supple care Boruch takes in depicting her everyday scenes. And yet there are few surprises. (Feb.)

Review

“Boruch’s superb instinct for the structure of free verse and her fine eye for daily life have won her national respect . . . Few readers will come away unimpressed by the supple care Boruch takes in depicting her everyday scenes.”—Publishers Weekly


"Like Elizabeth Bishop, Boruch refuses to see more than there is in things -- but her patience, her willingness to wait for the film of familiarity to slip, allows her to see what is there with a jeweler's sense of facet and flaw."—Michal Robbins, Poetry


“There is no living writer we need more these days than Marianne Boruch.”—Monica Berlin, Black Warrior Review


“The book’s title tells us that we have fallen from grace, but its poems allow us, however briefly, to ascend.”—Carrie Shipers, Prairie Schooner

Format: Hardcover
The third anthology of poetry from veteran poet Marianne Boruch, entitled "Grace, Fallen From" is now available. In this gripping collection of poems, Boruch touches on a wide range of subjects, and in the process, evokes a long range of emotions from her readers, from humor to making her readers think to pulling at their heart strings, Boruch does it all. "Grace, Fallen From" is a deftly composed volume of poetry and a pick for any poetry lover or community library poetry collection. February: The sparrow on the trash again, one/leg missing, he/alights and drops down, alights/in this cold, and crooked,/drops down again through he could/fly. He has to, most of the day/I imagine, into its/exhaustion, those moments he/finds a window sill or a patch/of sold leaves under some/overhang, his one leg, good wire, pulled under him, feathers/puffed out - swollen thing, ridiculous -/ for warmth. All the lives I/might have had: this one, oh, this one.
