Finalist for the National Book Award: May Sarton at her evocative and contemplative best The title poem of this entrancing collection compares love to salt for its ability both to dissolve and to crystallize "into a presence." At once philosophical and fiercely corporeal, this work presents emotion as a sensory experience. Written with Sarton's characteristic concision, these deeply felt poems will delight readers.
