The invisible wedding
Metadata[+] Show full item record
The poems in The Invisible Wedding consider the moment when routine disintegrates, when the outer environment declares itself and we are forced to organize an inner response. In these poems of discovery, Robbins is concerned less with arriving at answers or a fixed stance than with bringing thought, feeling, and action into harmonious movement.--Book jacket.
