The Generosity is Luci' Shaw's 38th book. In it Shaw celebrates the beautiful diversity of nature and human nature in lyric poems with wide-ranging themes. The writing is both accessible and profound, and has been described as reminiscent of Dylan Thomas. 

"Luci Shaw's poems have always been welcome company, but how much more so in anxious times. There is a substantial comfort in her instinct for pleasure--in language, creation, people, habits. Her poems reveal a mind marked by humor, curiosity, good nature, and, well, generosity. Each poem in this new book is a short lesson in noticing the world attentively, and a reminder to slow down and find the wonder, not just in the natural world, but in the less lovely things that make up our ordinary lives and duties. Time spent with Luci is time redeemed." -- Mary Kenagy Mitchell, Executive Editor, Image

Luci Shaw was born in London, England, in 1928. A poet and essayist, since 1986 she has been Writer in Residence at Regent College, Vancouver. Author of thirty-eight books of poetry and creative non-fiction, her writing has appeared in numerous literary and religious journals. In 2013 she received the 10th annual Denise Levertov Award for Creative Writing from Seattle Pacific University. She lives with her husband, John Hoyte, in Bellingham, WA.
