Overview


Poetry. Written during the two years following the death of her husband, Miriam Sagan's THE WIDOW'S COAT paints landscapes of bleak astonishment that he is no longer alive, vivid images of his continued presence in the everyday experience of memory, and jumbled ranges of confusion and surprise as she finds herself once again in love with a childhood sweetheart. "When the worst befalls the best, sometimes amazed music occurs. Miriam Sagan eulogizes and exalts so that we're able to feel our own griefs while rejoicing that she has articulated loss so bravely and well"--Joan Logghe.
