Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“Longing itself is nothing but the hearts open spaces,” writes Mari LEsperance. And in the open spaces at the heart of these poems is a mother who has disappeared. In a world of war and displacement, illness of the mind and body, imprisonment and violence both historical and personal, the poet leads her readers through a landscape of loss. In unadorned language, she draws readers into the interplay between articulation and silence—and finally offers a vision of redemption.

About the Author

Mari LEsperances poems have appeared in Pequod, the Beloit Poetry Journal, Barnabe Mountain Review, and Salamander, as well as numerous other journals. Her chapbook, Begin Here, was awarded first prize in the 1999 Sarasota Poetry Theatre Press national chapbook competition.
