Hard-Earned Wisdom: Two Poets on Small Ecstasies & Difficult Loves
Tuesday, November 16, 2021 @ 12:00 pm
In The Impossible: Poems, Deborah DeNicola explores landscapes of her own passion, her mother’s decline, and her father’s life, death, and imagined afterlife with hard-earned wisdom, transforming the personal into something beyond universal – the possibility that each life, encompassing its own suffering, questing, and small ecstasies, is really a stage toward a greater “becoming.” Barbra Nightingale is full of vulnerability, smarts, and sometimes hilarity in Spells & Other Ways of Flying: Poems. She brings her witchy poetry powers to poems of both difficult and wonderful loves, tracing various angers and honoring the emotional landscape of the heart.
