Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Poetry
Her most acclaimed volume of poetry, American Primitive contains fifty visionary poems about nature, the humanity in love, and the wilderness of America, both within our bodies and outside.
"American Primitive enchants me with the purity of its lyric voice, the loving freshness of its perceptions, and the singular glow of a spiritual life brightening the pages." -- Stanley Kunitz
"These poems are natural growths out of a loam of perception and feeling, and instinctive skill with language makes them seem effortless. Reading them is a sensual delight." -- May Swenson

Quite good set of poems, with nature and transformation being the predominant themes. My favourites were "Lightning", "Vultures", "Crossing the swamp" and "The Sea" (especially those last two).
