To poems selected from Margaret Gibson’s five previous volumes, Earth Elegy adds a book-length collection of new verse. Together they trace the workings of a sensibility that focuses emotional intensity like light through a magnifying glass, bringing its subjects alive in blazes of almost unbearable clarity.

Earth Elegy, writes Carolyn Forché, “partakes of Rilke’s apprehension of poetry as ‘the natural prayer of the human soul,’ issuing from a radiant knowledge of the radical contingency of all life, in the precariousness of its presence and futurity. These are requia of resistance, reminding us that life itself, our sojourn on earth, is the deepest spiritual practice.”

Earth Elegy demonstrates Gibson’s mastery and powerful reach. Here is a body of work richly rooted in meditative solitude and social struggle―compassionate in its belief in human dignity, passionate in its exploration of the dynamics of radiance and grief in our psychic and social lives.

I thought Icon & Evidence was superb and that would be enough for one poet to accomplish. I couldn't be more pleased and nourished than I am by this new discovery! Read her to understand what I mean!

I had the joy of meeting Margaret Gibson at a literary festival and was pleased to put a face and warm personality to the beautiful works I have read. Earth Elegy is a wonderful book, with a mix of new poems and selected old favorites. "Dia De Los Muertos" and "Fire Elegy" are strong works, along with the other poems. She has a good grasp of language and I'm glad to have become acquainted with both her as a person and her as a poetess.

I picked up this book randomly at the book store when I saw the title and was intrigued. This has turned out to be the best book of poetry I have ever read! If you like Rilke, you will love this book as well. Margaret Gibson has an amazing gift with language and a very insightful view of the world and her own experiences. Her poems are filled with longing and love. "I want the faith that moves mountains. / I want the bright force that keeps them still." ("Keeping Still") This is the kind of book that you keep near you and pick up again and again whenever you want comfort or inspiration.
