Publisher Comments:

In her fifth collection, Rosanna Warren draws inspiration not only from her own life but also from the works of other artists, both classical and contemporary, real and imagined. Warren explores the political and the personal through myth, history, elegy, and erotic lyric. She eulogizes her mother in poems such as "Mediterranean," where she writes, "the mystery was / not that she walked there, ten years after her death, / / but that she vanished, and let twilight take her place--."
