A tender work of mourning, this poetry collection-owing to the remembered words of a much-loved husband-recalls the author's life before marriage and considers a future after her husband's death. Imagining that future, she confronts the myths of an afterlife, a belief in God, her debts to other poets, and her dependence on friends and children. At the center of these beautiful lyrics-written with complete control of rhythm and tone-it is a man, rather than grief, that appears clearly.
