Ghost Volcano: Poemsby Sandra M. Gilbert, Gilbert
Here in her beautiful and brilliant new collection, Sandra Gilbert collects the poems she wrote in memory of her husband's unexpected and inexplicable death. 'Widow's Walk, ' the book's centerpiece, charts the poet's journey though the stages of grief, from the bleak moments when her lost love seems massive as a ghost volcano, 'dead / and gigantic and frozen in reproach, ' so that there is 'nowhere / you are not, nowhere / you are not, ' to the tenuous instant when she realizes that she must' send you forth....musing and lit with your own past toward the unimaginable ice cliffs, / south of the south.'
