"I found myself turning over notions that have always been at the fore for romantic poets: the nature of beauty, the nature of the soul, how love exists in time," says poet and memoirist Mark Doty of his 2008 #NBAward-Winning #Poetry collection Fire to Fire. On our blog dedicated to Winners of the #NBAward for #Poetry, poet KiKi Petrosino praises the collection’s “attentive, compelling lyric presence.” Doty’s verse, says Petrosino, “is awash in images that appeal to every bodily sense, and the accumulation of these images takes us on a rhapsodic journey.”
