Mark Doty's Fire to Fire collects the best of Mark Doty's seven books of poetry, along with a generous selection of new work. Doty's subjects--our mortal situation, the evanescent beauty of the world, desire's transformative power, and art's ability to give shape to human lives--echo and develop across twenty years of poems. His signature style encompasses both the plainspoken and the artfully wrought; here one of contemporary American poetry's most lauded, recognizable voices speaks to the crises and possibilities of our times.

All of Mark Doty's poems are beautiful, and this anthology includes my favorite piece in particular, "Atlantis." He tackles grief in a wholly unique and gut-wrenching way. These are pieces that stick with you long after you close the book.
