Death and Transfiguration: Poemsby Kelly Cherry
In her latest, deeply moving collection, Kelly Cherry confronts the basic questions of love and death, faith and suffering. From her search for "a new poetry", Cherry wrests a passionate, authoritative, powerful vision that is itself transfiguring. DEATH AND TRANSFIGURATION focuses on the wisdom one gains from pain rather than on the pain itself. Cherry grasps her anguish to see how much she can stand. 64 pp.
