Description
A person who enters completely into the experience of a poem is initiated into a deeper intimacy with life. Nine Gates is a book about the writing and reading of poems; it is also about consciousness itself, about the way the mind and heart shift into a different kind of awareness when they are joined in a language working fully in every part.

A superb primer for the general reader, Nine Gates is also a manual for the working writer, each "gate" exploring particular strategies of language and thought that allow the art to convey complex meaning and emotion with clarity and force.

Above all, Nine Gates is an insightful guide to the way the mind of poetry awakens our most fundamental consciousness to its fullest life.
