Missing Her

Missing Her (New Issues Poetry & Prose) - Claudia Keelan

An elegiac collection of poetry often centering around loss. Loss of a parent, loss of place, loss of innocence, loss of childhood. The poems themselves range from several page, dense, explorations to shorter more simple works. There is also a strong feminist current running through these works that spoke to me. In the end the language choices and abstraction didn't speak to my personal preferences, but this is a solid collection nonetheless.
