Mining the veins of myth, love, and the natural world, Valerie Wohlfeld writes in lyrical, sensuous language that interplays with poetic form. She uses an exact vocabulary to describe the heart and its chambers [the correspondence of Persephone and Demeter], and the bittersweet love letter never sent to its betrayer. Here the magic of language never trumps meaning, but highlights and illuminates the transcendent world around us.
