Review: The Alphabet of Desire, poems by Barbara Hamby
But the last section of the collection was my favorite - her Italian Odes. Ripe with colloquialism, full of wit and bright with realism. These were the poems that seemed closest to her heart - those which were the most real to her and, therefore, the most real to me.
One more book of poetry, and then I get to re-read The Grapes of Wrath :)
