“Most of these poems begin with paintings and photographs, and rise from them as fragrance rises from spring flowers after a hard winter, a gift to us from language that survives and blooms and brings us pleasures we hardly know how to name. Kathleen Spivack has created another in her series of award-winning books, a crowning achievement that lifts darkness and light and mixes them with consummate skill, passion, and the wide experience of a docent in the living museum of our time.”

A History of Yearning won the Sow’s Ear Chapbook Prize, 2009, and The London Book Festival and New England Book Festival Prizes. Individual poems were awarded the Allen Ginsberg, Erika Mumford, and Paumonuk Awards.
