Hecht's poetry has full measures of play, wisdom, sheer joy of invention. Her poems demonstrate a mastery of craft and a unique voice buoyed by brilliance. She explains-in her endlessly appealing half-outrageous, half-conspiratorial voice-her purpose: a guidebook for those who come after. WE are the next ancient world, and Hecht makes myths out of our daily lives.
