Published books of poetry written by Rosanna Warren.
Each Leaf Shines Separate (poems),
W. W. Norton, 1984
In this stunning first book, Rosanna Warren writes with wisdom, grace, and pure intelligence “as though to seize on a new life.” Exploring the complexities of nature and art, she traces continuous travail between the earth—in its tangle of roots and cyclical consolation—and the restless and protesting mind. Thus we encounter the struggle for sustaining generations of life in the villages of Europe, the ruins of Crete, a fresco or bas-relief.

In this inspiring volume, Rosanna Warren chronologically arranges poems selected from her four published collections of poetry. She places the poetry “under the protection of two poetry saints: William Blake and Hart Crane,” and convincingly reminds us that “poems have work to do: to bear witness, to cry out, to lament, to praise. They should be psalms for their time.”
