—Ursula Le Guin, Washington Post

Breathing The Water

Poetry by Denise Levertov

Arranged in seven parts and culminating in the superb “The Showings: Lady Julian of Norwich,” Breathing the Water draws the readers deep into spiritual domains––not in order to leave the world behind, but to reanimate our sometimes dormant love for it.
