Fire to Fire by Mark Doty

This new and selected book of poetry by Mark Doty highlights an amazing writing career. Reading Mark Doty's poems, the reader encounters the inspiration in everyday things through his truly accomplished imagery and language. His skill is so finely tuned as to appear effortless, with beautiful phrases like "a rinse of blue" flowing naturally when describing a crab shell. Absolutely lovely.
