This new compilation, beginning where her Collected Earlier Poems 1940-1960(New Directions, 1979) left off, shows both a refining of the poet’scraft and a widening of her concerns.” We are living our whole lives in astate of emergency,” she wrote in 1967. Levertov’s staunch antiwarstand is reflected here in such poems as “Life at War” and “What WereThey Like?” with what Kenneth Rexroth called “the special luster of asensibility that never sacrifices humaneness to intensity.” Side by sidewith her poetry of protest is that of celebration—“Song for Ishtar,”“Come into Animal Presence,” “ Luxury”—and tolerance for “The Mutes”uttering “those groans men use/passing a woman on the street…to tell hershe is female” as well as for “The Ache of Marriage.” Here also are ameditation “During the Eichmann Trial,” “Olga Poems” (a sequence inmemoriam), and “Say the Word,” the poet’s first published story.
