Blessing the House (Pitt Poetry)

Blessing the House (Pitt Poetry) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jim Daniels Blessing the House visits the sites of domestic faith - Catholic schools, sex and marriage, childbirth - in an attempt to witness a world worth believing in.  In their search for hope, grace, and decency in the small dramas of an individual life, these poems become larger, more overtly political and express a genuine interest in human emotion.

Synopsis:

In his fourth book of poems, Jim Daniels visits the sites of domestic faith - Catholic schools, sex and marriage, childbirth - in an attempt to witness a world worth believing in.  A sense of search unites these poems, whether they take place on the cement slabs of a 1950s Detroit suburb or on the hillside cemetary of an Italian village.  In their search for hope, grace, and decency in the small dramas of an individual life, the poems of Blessing the House become larger, more overtly political.  They are, as Daniels writes, “prayers for this world, with their clear consequence.”
