This chapter details the life and career of Denise Levertov from 1989 to 1992. Levertov was a peripatetic who changed residence more than twenty times, not including shuttling from Somerville to Stanford for eight years, fifteen years of summering in Maine, and numerous trips to Mexico to tend to her mother. She traveled abroad often, visiting more than sixteen countries, and was frequently on the road with poetry readings and lecturing. In January 1989, she made the decision to move to Seattle. This was also a time of personal happiness and public acclaim. She received the Jerome Shestack Prize from the American Poetry Review and a coveted fellowship from the Rockefeller Foundation, which provided five weeks in Italy. Her political activism diminished, but it never completely ended. She continued to write and lecture about justice issues.
