Funny, sublime, and highly accessible, the poetry of Elizabeth Elliott brings to life themes of love, family, religion, politics, sex and death. Her second collection features both newly published poems and work selected from a career spanning nearly 70 years of writing. Her poetry explores the human condition in our quests for power and truth, for persistence, justice and hope. On our need for individuality, a purpose, and for achieving our goals with courage and persistence. Her poems show us our innocence and our temptations, our gratitude and appreciation, and our freedom. Our struggle to overcome loss and death, evil and harm, and to find love and joy with the healing power of our spirit and our psyche. And our capacity to play, to study nature, science, and time, to create art and beauty, to sense the paradox and to experience the transformation of our lives. Here is the poetry of life, and a life of poetry.

"The precisions of Dickenson and Moore, their somewhat tactful measurings of the sublime (important not to intimidate it!), and farther back, the elegiac smile of Herrick and Vaughan's starry night inform Elizabeth Elliott's poetry, for our pleasure and profit. Here is a strong and original voice that speaks from the center of the English poetic tradition"
- John Ashberry

"Elizabeth Elliott's BURN ALL NIGHT is a maturely disciplined volume, the work of a refined sensibility and an authentic stylist. There are poems here that sustain repeated rereading, and that should endure."
- Harold Bloom, Sterling Professor of the Humanities, Yale University

"I was greatly taken by [Burn all Night]'s wit, eloquence and lyricism. Some of the poems have the incantory power of Blake or Yeats, a quality I miss in most contemporary poetry. Others are wonderfully rich in sensory detail."
- Rodger Gilbert
