A Glimpse to Open

A Glimpse to Open spans 33 years of poetry in the life of American (but Norman-French by lineage), lesbian poetess and writer Danielle Sainte-Marie. It is a book meant to help open a reader to what it is like to live poetically; it is a glimpse of actively seeking and/or serendipitously finding, the mystical experience of being human. Filled with poetry, quotes she has written throughout her amazing life and even an essay on what poetry means to her, A Glimpse to Open is truly a book worth living with for many, many years.
As she once remarked, “When one has mystical experience, one no longer needs faith in the mystical.”
