Description

T.S. Eliot and Tennessee Ernie Ford, Buddha and Jesus, Jung and Heidegger. Love, solitude, obliteration, the ocean and a sad neighbor who feeds pigeons. Metanoia is an aphoristically narrative poem that engages all of these, a book-length meditation on transformation, enlightenment, on opening one's eyes. McCartney's work evinces that journey, the junket into the self.

Editorial Review

Praise for Metanoia

"So much is revealed in so few words ... It's a book that feels light, but its delivery is heavy, and worthy of contemplation ... McCartney is merciless in exposing vulnerability, but also builds an intimacy integral to Metanoia's achievement."—Quill & Quire, starred review

"Sharon McCartney is something else, a poet with a personal vision who, in work after work, digs deeper into the exposed tissue of her own soul."Numéro Cinq
