about this item

A Pulitzer Prize-winning author details an unconsummated love affair that sustains political, philosophical, and sexual interest over a lifetime.

The truth is always differentfrom what anyone says out loud,but who really cares? Not I, said the manI chose to be, nor I nor I nor I—among the many of us she left teetering.

Stephen Dunn is a Pulitzer Prize winner and the author of seventeen collections of poetry, most recentlyLines of Defense, Here and Now, and What Goes On: Selected & New Poems: 1995-2009. He teaches at Richard Stockton College of New Jersey.

In a poem sequence that resembles a small but self-enclosed novel, acclaimed poet Stephen Dunn describes a love affair sustained over a lifetime.Keeper of Limits creates the record of a real infatuation that is also dream-like, an affair that?s imagined from a more pedestrian relationship.
