Time of Grief: Mourning Poems Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Time of Grief is an anthology of poems divided into forty-nine days of mourning: "forty-nine days of mourning: reflecting a period of grieving as observed in Buddhist and Judaic traditions. Each day’s reading consists of one or more poems by some of the world’s most celebrated poets from diverse cultures and centuries, from classical times to today. Seventy-five writers from over twenty countries confront illness, loss, love lost, death and mortality, through moving requiems and lamentations, elegies and eulogies. Reaffirming poetry’s ancient and intimate link with ritual, this collection opens up a calendrical, spiritual space for readers to experience bereavement as a means toward transformation.


Time of Grief: Mourning Poems presents a wide-ranging selection of poets from classical to modern times writing on themes of grief and loss, death and mourning.
