Indelible by Rachel Hadas

The title, Indelible, refers to the enduring marks of time's passage. Accordingly, the poems in this thematically resonant and tightly unified collection trace the ways family, art (particularly literature), elegy and dreams color and shape one another. The poems in Indelible pick up thematic threads from her earlier poetry with a new perspective, and new stylistic features such as prose and prose-like poems, but with all of the hallmarks Hadas' readers have come to expect: fine-honed style; human and very accessible subject matter; lyric beauty and formal control.
