The author offers a new approach to poetry by going through old nonfiction books, finding passages that amuse or interest her, and rearranging them into poems that range from funny to serious to reflective

Blackwell North Amer
In Mornings Like This Annie Dillard has given us a witty and moving collection of poems in a wholly original form. Extracting and rearranging sentences from old or odd books, she has composed ironic poems - some serious, some light - on poetry's most heartfelt themes of love, nature, nostalgia, and death. This is a unique variation on the found-poem form. It enables the poet "to dig deep with a shallow tool." Dillard's characteristic voice sounds throughout.
