The Ocean Liner's Wake

The Ocean Liner's Wake

by Ellen Wehle
     
 

Poetry. Lush, languid, enamored with the natural world, THE OCEAN LINER'S WAKE is a book of longing. In these wide-ranging poems the Other takes many forms: lover or God, a bridge, a sprig of forsythia. But always, the poems seem to say, what we hunger for is union. In spare, chiseled lines Wehle examines what it means to be fully alive to the world.
