Learning a First Language: Selected Poems and Prose Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Learning a First Language is a complex and beautifully crafted collection of skillfully interwoven poetry and prose that explores the themes of memory, regret, hope and the relationship between art and passion.

It begins with love, a reactionary stream of consciousness poem written in response to an unexpected and unsolicited marriage proposal, and ends with the final chapter of the author's meandering narrative account of a character known only as The Artist. His story twists and turns its way through the text, shedding light on both the inspirations and contrary emotions that shape Ray's poetry.

Blending elements of fiction and memoir, this collection provides readers not only with a glimpse into the author's personal experiences with love and loss, but also with a universal love story that reminds us of the importance and necessity of loving with abandon.
