|From The Publisher*||The dazzling new collection from the winner of the 2020 Nobel Prize in Literature.|
Louise Glück's work consistently draws on her own experience, looking for the common threads in it that render it universal. Her poems are not confessional, they are mythic. In Winter Recipes from the Collective, she starts with the dying and death of a near relation to create an indelible group of characters who act in poems that touch on the family romance, loss, art, and immortality. Her poems are so powerful because her portrayal of experience reminds us so trenchantly of what we recognize we too have seen and felt.
