The Woman Who Died in Her Sleep

By Linda Gregerson (NHC Fellow, 1991–92)

American Literature; Poetry; Women Authors

Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1996

From the publisher’s description:

Mark Strand called these poems "among the very best being written." Bravely exploring the ways in which we encounter mortality, they emphasize the resourcefulness of the human spirit, the intelligence of the body, the abundant beauty of the created world. Devotional, even celebratory in their cadence, they move with the gravity of high art.
