By Dana Greene on September 22, 2013
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is not hyperboly. These are stunning poems, beautifully crafted, evocative of the complex daughter-mother relationship. Angela O'Donnell is a poet to watch, and in this case to savor.

Format: Paperback
I'm a long-time fan of O'Donnell's poetry. It is imbued with an earthy spirituality that can face up to the cruelty and tragedy in the world. Yet without ever trying to sugarcoat the hard truths of the human condition--the pain, heartache and brokenness--she refuses to resign herself to grim acceptance of "the survival of the fittest." Her poetry explores the bonds that neither time nor distance nor death can break, the ties of memory and hope that hold us together. Her poetry is both Catholic and catholic, echoing with the universality and honesty of Emily Dickenson as well as the spiritual vision of Gerard Manly Hopkins. She is a poet of rare talent.

A remarkable collection of poems, alternately sharp as piranha teeth and soothing as a favorite blanket. I strongly recommend reading this as a companion to O'Donnell's Mortal Blessings: A Sacramental Farewell. Together they paint beautiful pictures, with bright foregrounds and dark recesses, of a daughter and her mother.
