Winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award in Poetry, 1986 This is a lovely and moving collection, and it has not only the courage of its strong emotions, but the language and form that makes and keeps them clear and true. Anthony Hecht Hirsch remains a poet of celebration, but the sorrows of the world are here too, in equal measure. The language is, throughout, simple, sensuous, and direct. We can be grateful for this book and this poet. Jay Parini I have known the poetry of Edward Hirsch for some time, and have greatly admired it. But I even more greatly admire his "Wild Gratitude" as a general collection, and I am convinced that the best poems here are unsurpassed in our time. Robert Penn Warren"
