Paperback / softback
Richly inspired by their subjects, the poems of this collection speak of everything from geographic locations, family photographs, nature, art, and literature - unified by unexpected imagery and a narrational intimacy that is startlingly inclusive. Many of the poems are responses, in which myth and fairy tale become as real as the everyday, and the ordinary is embellished with fantastical metaphor. The 48 poems in this collection imbue the emotions of memory, such as regret and melancholy, with a calm restraint that adds to the depth in their meaning and demonstrates the masterly writing of the poet.
