House Dreams, Deanna Young's haunted and haunting third collection, is at once a core sample of the life we all live underground, and a view beneath the foundations of the various eras and places that make up one woman's life story. These poems have the plainspoken power, surreal shifting, uncanny logic and transformed everyday imagery of our most numinous dreams. It's as if Jung's assertion that "[w]hen an inner situation is not made conscious, it appears outside as fate," is taken up here as a reading guide back through time.
