In Praise of Falling (Pitt Poetry Series)

By: Cheryl Dumesnil (author)Paperback

1 - 2 weeks availability


The poems in this collection are the proverbial spring bulbs abandoned in the basement, growing toward a slim crack of sunlight. They are both aware of the limitations of social structures and forcefully committed to breaking out of those traps, urging toward a better way of living. The characters in these poems resist the twenty-first century s prescription for a life of emotional-spiritual bankruptcy, reaching toward an ever-elusive glimmer on the horizon."
