com Product Description (ISBN 0819511684, Paperback). In the title poem "Fortress", the medieval walled castle is the stronghold in which the family dwells. There are stories here of people in the "fortresses" of the self, the city, or the natural world. All these poems have in common a lyrical approach to solitude ("the only protection, against death/ was to love solitude") and an ironical vision for which love of beauty and the longing for the world are the cure.
BRENDA HILLMAN began writing poetry when she was a child in Tucson. She is the author of Coffee, 3 . 1982), and two other books of poetry published by Wesleyan University Press, White Dress (1985) and Fortress (1989).

Book Description: Winner of the Laurence L. & Thomas Winship, PEN New England Award (2012). Address draws us into visible and invisible architectures, into acts of intimate and public address. These poems are concentrated, polyvocal, and sharply attentive to acts of representation; they take personally their politics and in the process reveal something about the way civic structures inhabit the imagination. Reality Crumbs: Selected Poems.
Structurally virtuosic, elaborate without being ornate, Loose Sugar is spun into series within series: each of the five sections has a dual heading (such as "space, time" or "time, work") in which the terms are neither in collision nor collusion, but in conversation.
Hillman’s early poetry collections received critical praise for their transfiguration of experience. With the publication of Loose Sugar, however, Hillman acquired a formidable reputation in the world of contemporary poetry. Cascadia (2001) and Pieces of Air in the Epic (2003) both use complicated structures to achieve what Forrest Gander has called poetic architectures. The fourth volume in the series, Seasonal Works With Letters on Fire (2013), was a long-list finalist for the National Book Award.
