Badgers at dusk, the dark bird of a dream or an omen, white-robed nuns--in her latest collection, "Damages," Elaine Terranova paints a world in chiaroscuro. This is a vision that moves from the shadows of everyday life to its brighter sparks of meaning. The central characters are ourselves and our alter egos, one whole flowering in the world, the other damaged.
