All Fire All Water is both a hymn to all that is broken and destroyed in the world and a song of celebration for the earth’s renewal and rebirth. These poems express sorrow and joy at all we have lost, all we have failed to protect. In the midst of pain, Judith Roche finds irony and humor, and carries us with her on this passionate journey.
All fire All Water is Judith Roche’s fourth poetry collection. Her third collection, Wisdom of the Body, won an American Book Award and was also nominated for a Pushcart. She has taught at numerous universities and currently teaches at Richard Hugo House in Seattle and is a Fellow in the Black Earth Institute.
