The Moon Makes Its Own Plea (American Poets Continuum)by Wendy Mnookin
Synopses & Reviews
The Moon Makes Its Own Plea is a departure from Wendy Mnookin’s previous work. Rather than considering a single experience that transforms her perception of her world (such as a child’s illness, a father’s death), Mnookin explores the idea of self and how that self is strengthened and challenged by relationships.
Although the book is still anchored in everyday life, the narrative is more fluid, making greater use of associative thinking.
Wendy Mnookin’s previous books include To Get Here (BOA Editions, 1999) and What He Took (BOA Editions, 2002), which won the New England Poetry Prize. Her website is www.wendymnookin.com.
The winner of the 2002 New England Poetry Prize returns with a rich fourth collection of poems.
