Summary "Annie Finch's unique voice pulses through Calendars, singing the cycles of time that unite our lives with nature and each other. As they mark the turns in the wheel of the year, these innovative and radically traditional poems conjure a new Self, freed into a reality without centers." "Calendars' celebrations of word, body, and the earth - whether in a hauntingly fragmented meditation on Persephone, a classically wrought epithalamium, or a sequence of ecstatic lyrics on childbirth - echo in the reader's ear long after the book is closed. This poet illuminates the sacred in the mundane, and gives voice to the earth-centered spirituality of our era."--Jacket.
