As in her poetry, Levertov’s descriptions and characterizations can be flawless; her ability to relate an incident is at once timeless and immediate, boundless and searingly personal. ‘These tesserae have no pretensions,’ Levertov notes. She is right–these lovely, lyrical remembrances are too true and spare ever to invite such criticism.
