Love, Death, and the Changing of the Seasons

Love, Death, and the Changing of the Seasons Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"These sonnets are graphic, colloquial and immediate; Hacker's command of the straitening, fixed form, which often seems archaic and empty when used by other poets, is a stunning achievement." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Hacker's impressive technical skills, combined with the sensitivity of her subject and her straightforward diction, prevent the book from becoming the flat diary a lesser poet might have written." Library Journal

Synopsis:

This critically acclaimed sonnet sequence is the passionately intense story of a love affair between two women, from the electricity of their first acquaintance to the experience of their parting.
