Ruth Stone has been the recipient of a 1986 Whiting Award, two Guggenheim Fellowships, the 1984 Delmore Schwartz Award, the Cerf Lifetime Achievement Award from the state of Vermont, the Bess Hokin Prize from "Poetry" magazine, National Book Award. "Ruth Stone has rightly been called America's Akhmatova, and the octogenarian is considered a "Mother Poet" to many contemporary writers. She writes with crackling intelligence, interrogating history from the vantage point of an aging and impoverished woman. Wise, sardonic, crafty, and deceptively simple, Stone loves heavy themes but loathes heavy poems. -'In the Next Galaxy' dust jacket flap. "Ruth Stone's work is dazzling, original, fearless, funny, and deeply moving. "-Sharon Olds. " The dark Stone alludes to in the title of her ninth book of poetry might be the advancing twilight of her failing sight, but then again, to be in the dark is to be unenlightened, ignorant of some necessary truth. Of course, the dark can also be consoling, and Stone does love the glimmering night sky. So she evokes many shades of darkness as she looks back on a long life, although there is little to indicate that this pithy, punning, fractal-dazzled poet is, in fact, entering her 90s. Except for her long perspective, and the keen awareness of how much the texture of our lives has changed over the decades without our becoming at all relevant to the churning cosmos. Stone appeals to the mind's eye and the physical ear, each word tested for ripeness like fruit, each a perfectly held note. Wry animal parables, spare and intense dramas, gorgeous nature lyrics, and bracing metaphysical musings constitute a clarion collection by a National Book Award-winning, and profoundly rewarding, poet.
