summary Vita Nova

He poet Robert Hass her invention Vita Nova like its immediate predecessors a booklength seuence combines the ecstatic utterance of The Wild Iris with the worldly dramas elaborated in Meadowlands Vita Nova is a book that exists in the long moment of spring a book of deaths and beginnings resignation and hope; brutal luminous and far s An enjoyable collection but with a weaker and less distinct voice overall than her other work It was written very much in the Mary Oliver style of forgettable if decent mainstream poetry The recurring imagery of a hell on earth in its various manifestations somewhat saves itHighlights Descent to the Valley Immortal Love Eurydice Seizure
