Review

Every time I read poetry, I discover something new. In this case, Maxine Kumin’s poetry is an example of poems that tell a story.  They evoke imagery not just emotion.  Kumin who recently passed away at age 88 was a Pulitzer Prize winning poet, served as poetry consultant to the Library of Congress from 1981-1982 and was poet laureate of New Hampshire. Where I live, her final collection,  was the winner of the 2011 Los Angeles Times Book Award.  The nice thing about poetry is that it can be sampled and this is a fine volume to sample.
