The Risks of Remembrance
In Ann's poetry, images become language; a language that directly grips the observer/reader. We come to know by the word and by the image. Like Plato’s cave we get glimpses of light among the shadows.
–Jane Burns, painter/printmaker
Ann Elizabeth Carson zeros in on some of the often unspoken, but universal, preoccupations of people nearing the end of life's journey. In subtle yet accessible poems she untangles the skeins of her life and transforms trauma into songs celebrating “Lifes long fact –fiction dance”. This volume will give all who have mourned renewed hope and inspiration.
