News at Eleven: [Louise] Glück's new and career-spanning

"Poems 1962-2012" is a major event in this country's literature, perhaps this year's most major. It collects the entirety of this ruthless poet's verse from her debut, "Firstborn" (1968), through "A Village Life" (2009), 11 books over four decades.

Put together, these compact volumes have a great novel's cohesiveness and raking moral intensity.
