Grace Paley describes herself as a "combative pacifist and cooperative anarchist." Though Begin Againdoes contain some new poems, it could well be described as an excellent retospective of this seasoned poet. A teacher, activist, and National Book Award-winning master of the short story, Paley fashions poems about milkweed pods, Saint John's wort, bees, and ants, as well as poems about El Salvador, Vietnam, and AIDS. War, capitalism, sanitary napkins, old age, and old detail is too large or too small. Whether she's writing about New York City or her adopted rural Vermont, Paley speaks with the power of a rebel angel.
