Rough Music: Poems

Deborah Digges

This is Deborah Digges’s third book of poems and her best. Her first, Vesper Sparrows, won the Delmore Schwartz Memorial Poetry Award; her second, Late in the Millennium, garnered great critical praise. Mona Van Duyn said, “She takes a giant step of the imagination from a fine first book to this, in which, with inspired concision, disparate images and details are yoked together to draw us through a rich, human ‘story’ whose closure often leaves us gasping with both surprise and grateful consent.”
