Synopses & Reviews
Poetry. Lyric poems from the well-known feminist and former Yale Younger Poet. In this collection of poems, Olga Broumas returns to the more direct voice of her award-winning Beginning with O, to a poetics of sensuous detail made more vivid by her years of work as a massage therapist, to a poetry of the body. Her poems extend a broad social empathy where joy and sadness, hope and despair, co-exist in perfect harmony.
