Dark, Sweet: New and Selected Poems by Linda Hogan

"From the beginning of her career, Linda Hogan’s often prayer-like poems evoke liminality, speaking from blurred boundaries of animal and human, self and other, but it is the constant interpenetration of the sacred and mundane, which poet-theorist Jennifer Gosetti-Ferencei calls “the ecstatic quotidian,” that sets Linda Hogan’s work on a plane of its own.
Linda Hogan’s Dark, Sweet reveals the arc and breadth of a master poet’s life-work. It is one of those pieces of light that we live for." 
-Jeanetta Calhoun Mish

"We have stories / as old as the great seas / breaking through the chest / flying out the mouth, / noisy tongues that once were silenced, /all the oceans we contain / coming to light." —Linda Hogan
