Death and its many mysteries are explored in these autobiographical poems about the passing of the poet's beloved brother, the dementia that claimed her father, and the inevitable bodily changes that come with age. Experimenting with traditional forms such as elegies and dirges, the poems keep coming back to the paradoxes of love and loss. Finally, though, solace comes in shimmering poems that connect with the poet's two earlier collections and celebrate the beauty of rural upstate New York.
