display_description A courageous and enthralling collection of poems by Fear of Flying author Erica Jong celebrating life, art, sex, and womanhood seven lives, then we become light . . . Erica Jong's novels are fearless and passionate. So, too, is her poetry. Though renowned-and sometimes vilified-for her unabashedly sensual fiction, the author considers herself a poet first and foremost. "It was my poetry," Jong writes, "that kept me sane, that kept me whole, that kept me alive." Becoming Light contains poems personally selected by Jong from her complete oeuvre of acclaimed published works-poems of love, sex, witches, gods, and demons; word-songs brimming with wit, heart, bitterness, sorrow, and truth. From the earliest poetic musings of a brilliant young artist first trying out her wings to later works born of experience and maturity, unpublished before appearing in this collection, Jong's pure artistry shines like a beacon as she writes, fearlessly and passionately, about being a woman, about being alive. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erica Jong including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from the author's personal collection.
