The first of the three book, "The Reproduction of Profiles," was given to me for my birthday many years ago. That and the second book, "Lawn of the Excluded Middle" remain some of my favorite poems I have ever read. Waldrop is better known as a translator to some, but to me she is her own poet, and always will be. ONE OF THE BEST LIVING POETS!

This book encompasses three books of Waldrop’s poetry: The Reproduction of Profiles, Lawn of Excluded Middle (which is out of print) and Reluctant Gravities. May I gush? Waldrop has me rethinking my approach to the prose poem. I have half the book flagged and will be placing it in a place of honour in my bedside reading stack…unless Wilcke fights me for it.
