Winner of the 2001 National Poetry Series, selected by Fanny Howe

This book of poetry expresses its title in at least two ways: as a straight descent into the world and into the fear and reality of death; and as a fall from “purity” and spiritual “grace.” Elizabeth Robinson searches through her struggles with the spiritual world that is as fresh as today’s headlines.
