In this rapacious world, we eat or are eaten—so poet-critic Sandra M. Gilbert suggests throughout Judgment Day, her tenth collection of poems. Tracing this theme through the range of histories that make us who we are—private, public, religious, artistic, even culinary—Gilbert meditates on recent events as well as the sacred turnings of time, great works of graphic art, and the personal crises that continually reshape our lives.

Bringing together physical and metaphysical, elegy and celebration, Judgment Day is rich with grace and insight.

Sandra M. Gilbert has published numerous volumes of criticism, including, most recently, Death's Door: Modern Dying and the Ways We Grieve, as well as eight collections of poetry and a memoir. She is coeditor (with Susan Gubar) of The Norton Anthology of Literature by Women and a recipient of the National Book Critics Circle's Ivan Sandrof Lifetime Achievement Award. A Distinguished Professor of English emerita at the University of California, Davis, she lives in Berkeley, California.
