"In Sea Change, Jorie Graham brings us to the once-unimaginable threshold at which civilization as we know it becomes unsustainable.

Erosion by Jorie Graham( Book )

8 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 524 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

EROSION Jorie Graham From ""San Sepolcro"": ... How clean the mind is, holy grave. It is this girl by Piero della Francesca, unbuttoning her blue dress, her mantle of weather, to go into labor. Come, we can go in. It is before the birth of god. No-one has risen yet to the museums, to the assembly line--bodies and wings--to the open air market. This is what the living do: go in. It's a long way. And the dress keeps opening from eternity to privacy, quickening
Hybrids of plants and of ghosts by Jorie Graham( Book )

6 editions published in 1980 in English and Undetermined and held by 516 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"How I would like to catch the world / at pure idea," writes Jorie Graham, for whom a bird may be an alphabet, and flight an arc. Whatever the occasion--and her work offers a rich profusion of them--the poems reach to where possession is not within us, where new names are needed and meaning enlarged. Hence, what she sees reminds her of what is missing, and what she knows suggests what she cannot. From any event, she arcs bravely into the farthest reaches of mind. Fast readers will have trouble, but so what. To the good reader afraid of complexity, I would offer the clear trust that must bond u

From the New World : poems 1976-2014 by Jorie Graham( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"An indispensable volume of poems, selected from almost four decades of work, that tracks the evolution of one of our most renowned contemporary poets, Pulitzer Prize-winner Jorie Graham. Much awaited and long needed, From the New World...a sequence of poems from Jorie Graham's prior eleven books...offers more than a retrospect of this major poet's work. This selection, including several revised and new poems, creates a startlingly fresh trajectory through books whose brilliance and far-reaching innovations have significantly influenced the landscape of contemporary poetry, both in the United States and abroad. Graham's unique achievement is surprisingly recast in this illuminating new book, in which the concerns of the later work are seen already urgently pressing in the earliest. From the New World...part spiritual autobiography, part survival manual...tracks what it is to attempt wakefulness in this moment of human history."...Book jacket

This is a unique poetic response by Jorie Graham illuminating the shrill quietness of Jeannette Montgomery Barron's photographs. They haunt and thrill with an unerringly gentle strength of purpose. --Jane Campion
