Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sorrow Claribel Alegria Sorrow is a remarkable collection of love poems which Alegria wrote for her recently deceased husband. The poems are not only a recollection of their past, but also meditations on the meaning of death and the pain of separation as well as reflections on their eventual reunion. Most of the poems are brief piercing lyrics which radiate strength and optimism.

Synopsis:

In Sorrow, Claribel Alegria plumbs the depths of grief and wrests hope from pain and memory in lyrics written as love letters to her deceased husband. The poems not only summon their shared past in vivid detail, but also ponder the meaning of death and separation, and the yearning for eventual reunion.
