Bones of His Being

De (autor)
Notă GoodReads:
en Limba Engleză Paperback – 15 Apr 2012
In unflinching lyrics, Sue Chenette confronts her father's depression and death. Probing memories, fingering mementos -- a square nail, a sketch on a napkin, she examines them for what they may reveal of the father she was sure she knew, deepened, in death, into the mystery of his own being. The poems are a journey through grief, both a search for the father she loved and a searching look into a father/daughter relationship. At the heart of the book, the sequence "A Transport of Grief" explores a weave of pain, need, and blame, of family grudges and love, moments of solace, and the sweeping sense of loss that attends a parent's death

Recenzii

Sue Chenette's poems are gorgeously precise, writing a 'careful cursive' through the past, putting memories in their place. Slender Human Weight is full of the most elegant ghostings, as if Chenette herself were the life force, her sights on everything, from fruit bowls to faith, from buttons to full-blown love. {Barry Dempster}
