Fire to Fire: New and Selected Poems
Harper, 2008

Mark Doty

Fire to Fire: New and Selected=

Professor Mark Doty's Fire to Fire collects work from Mark Doty's seven books of poetry, along with a generous selection of new work. Doty's subjects—our mortal situation, the evanescent beauty of the world, desire's transformative power, and art's ability to give shape to human lives—echo and develop across twenty years of poems. His signature style encompasses both the plainspoken and the artfully wrought; here, one of contemporary American poetry's most lauded, recognizable voices speaks to the crises and possibilities of our times.
