Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book, Rosenberg's first full-length collection, won the Agnes Lynch Star rett Prize for 1985. The great theme of the book is mourning, and an elegiac tone runs through it from the dedication onward. Rosenberg writes feelingly and affectingly about marital love, mortal ity, and the grief attending the loss of a loved one. She writes in a relaxed con versational style to which a sharp eye for metaphoric detail and dramatic situ ation add emotional depth and imagina tive excitement. She writes with clarity and passion about themes that matter. The book deserves a wide audience. Highly recommended for all poetry col lections. Frank J. Lepkowski, Oak land Univ. Lib., Rochester, Mich.

    A review on

    A review on In the End, We are All Light By Liz Rosenberg View by Joseph Watson Liz Rosenberg known mainly for her role as a children¿s author has another side to her that most of us rarely get to see. The side of her that make up the elements of a stunning author. Liz has won several awards her his books, including the National Kellogg fellow in 1982, and the Agenes Starrett Poetry Prize for her book ¿The Fire Storm.¿ And this brings us to the Poem in question. In the End, We are All Light is a look into a part of life that many people never really look at the closely at. However it is these little thing that seem to make the different in ones life. Here Liz shows the reader how the rolls in life are shared between to people, in this poem mainly a man and his wife. Liz starts this simply worded poem out by stating a simple fact, ¿I love how old men carry purses for their wives.¿ And beings in discrib the little detail that are what her signature style of writing. Explaining how men seem to take the tasks handed to them by their mates with an objective outlook. Example of this again would be a man holding is wife¿s purse for her. The poem continues taking the reading on a trip into a world where the small become larger than life. As the poem begins to come to an ending point Liz starts to talk about what I can see to be the relationship between a man and a woman who have spent a long time together. How sometime people hold each other down in these expectation of one another that are formed after many years together. In the same light these expectation are also what ground us to the earth, giving someone a sense of self and support in a relationship. I am not the only one that thinks this poem as very good, for lack of a better word. Andy Brumer a book review writer for the New York Times wrote, ¿There is something extremely lovable about this book. Ms. Rosenberg is eager to jump into experience with the innocence of an enthusiast and the vulnerability of a lover.¿ I to find this to be true about the poem, it has a sense of playfulness to it that make for very interesting reading. Finding myself reading to everyone I met each time getting a different picture in my head of what Liz was trying to portray in words. ¿Liz writes with clarity and passion about themes that matter. The poem deserves a wide audience.¿ Writes Frank J. Lepkowski, Oak land Univ. Lib., Rochester, Mich. ¿She writes in a relaxed conversational style to which a sharp eye for metaphoric detail and dramatic situation add emotional depth and imaginative excitement.¿ Again I found this to be a true statement. Liz is someone that enjoys writing for the comment read. Drawing on her experience with children¿s books in how to relate a subject to the reader in a simply way, but so that the reader still getting a full account of the complexity in what is begin said. A prime example of the ability for the average to understand this work would be my own mother. I read to little poem to her and then asked her some questions like: What do you think that relationship between the two characters in the poem, the old man and the woman? And what was the simile of the ¿big tame birds¿ in relationship the characters? My mother was able to give me a fairly good answer to this question which was, ¿The man and woman her with no doubt husband and wife. The simile of the big tame birds, were in a sign of there relationship, stating how there life together has been come very tame, and `normalized¿ throughout the years.¿ This was a fairly good answer in my eyes. Seeing how my mother although very intelligent has very little poetic background. Again a testament to Liz¿s ability to write in a style that is easy for all to understand. After reading this poem, my interests were prompted to seek out some of other works; to my surprise she has published several books of poems. This poem came from a book title, ¿The Fire Music,¿ published in 1986.
