Late Wife: Poems (Southern Messenger Poets) by Claudia Emerson
Late Wife: Poems (Southern Messenger Poets)

abbya, February 7, 2007

I am drawn to subtle lines - the labyrinth between obscurantism and simplicity of poems like the ones in this collection. This is a fascinating experiment - a mixture of history, afterlife, exploration of the inner self and valences that add up the maze and webs of life. Claudia brilliantly quells apprehensions of poetryphobics with her luxuriantly beautiful lines, sonnets and elegies.
