Description

What We Carry is a profound exploration of the weight of human history at three levels: the individual, the cultural, and environmental. From her brilliant "Extinction Sonnets"--odes to various disappearing species--to a spirited examination of everyday salutations, Susan Glickman's range astonishes: ice storms, sugar maples, early love on the Orient Express, an archaeological dig at Mycenae. Serious but not solemn, full of linguistic and imagistic playfulness, the collection is anchored by poetic translations of Chopin's 24 Preludes, opus 28--his most experimental and characteristic compositions. The intimacy of Chopin's project has inspired sound-rich poems that, once again, prove Glickman's gift for capturing the frailty of human connections in a damaged world. "First light and the last, / first love and the last."
