Slow Work Through Sand (Iowa Poetry Prize) by Leslie Ullman
English | Mar. 1, 1998 | ISBN: 0877456151 | 104 Pages | PDF | 4 MB
For a number of years, Leslie Ullman has lived in the Southwest, on cultivated land, in the company of horses and with access to uncultivated desert. The seasons and conditions of this starkly appealing land have found their way into the poet and her work. Ullman creates origins for herself in nature, in solitude, in animals, and of course through those aspects of human relationships which teach important lessons. Since winning the prestigious Yale Younger Poets Award in 1979, Ullman has manifested her love of language as both writer and teacher.
