Talking to the Dead

by

A tender work of mourning, this poetry collection--owing to the remembered words of a much-loved husband--recalls the author's life before marriage and considers a future after her husband's death. Imagining that future, she confronts the myths of an afterlife, a belief in God, her debts to other poets, and her dependence on friends and children. At the center of these beautiful lyrics--written with complete control of rhythm and tone--it is a man, rather than grief, that appears clearly. Hide synopsis
