Upstairs in the Garden: Poems Selected and New, 1968–1988

'“Morgan fulfills the three requirements for good poetry . . . to teach, to delight, and to arouse passion. An accomplished and original poet, she commands a wealth of technical resources, so evident in the formal poems, yet spilling over into her free verse. Each of her lines has an integrity of its own, a shape indistinguishable from the material embedded within it.” —Poetry  “The development of Morgan’s artistry is everywhere evident. Work from her early feminist days is filled with rage at the powerlessness of women. . . . But as the pages turn, a new universality of concern and sureness of voice take hold . . . Lyricism and fresh technical discoveries proclaim new accomplishment in a ‘lavish larkspur song . . . with a passion for daily use.’ ” —Publishers Weekly “Audacious, courageous, poignant, wry—Robin Morgan’s collection is all this and more. A large audience will welcome them. So will historians in the future who need to know what the poetry of this time and place was like.” —Catharine R. Stimpson, former president, Modern Language Association'
