Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

The poems in Mrs. Dumpty are about “a great fall,” the dissolution of a long and loving marriage, but they are not simply documentary or elegiac. What interests Chana Bloch is the inner life: how we are formed by our losses and our parents’ losses, how we learn what we need to know through our intuitions and confusions, how we deny and delay and finally discover who we are.

About the Author

Chana Bloch has published two books of poems, The Secrets of the Tribe and The Past Keeps Changing, as well as translations of the biblical Song of Songs and work by the Israeli poets Dahlia Ravikovitch and Yehuda Amichai. She lives in Berkeley, California, and teaches at Mills College, where she is W. M. Keck Professor of English and director of the Creative Writing Program.
