Jennifer Parker,G.L. Morrison's A Close Circle of Strangers: Poems for a Lonely Planet PDF

By Jennifer Parker,G.L. Morrison

a detailed CIRCLE OF STRANGERS is a heartwarming and thought-provoking selection of unique "Poems for a Lonely Planet" from Jennifer Merri Parker, an award profitable, Mississippi-raised, globe-trotting author. Parker, who has famous in lately penned prose that her American wanderings and expatriate lifestyles in another country have culminated in a compulsion to pen an announcement of worldwide citizenship, a kind of "letter to the world," has ultimately, fortunately, positioned that missive in concrete shape. during this lyrical anthology, she speaks via a various selection of characters, delivering a number of takes on human interactions. those works discover the vagaries of relationships and rifts, connection, disconnection and neglected connection--all via phrases crafted with dependent tenderness, humor and perception. Parker, a Harvard graduate, former journalist, librarian and globe-trotting teacher/scholar, combines her personal stressed middle (with its consistent quest for novel and renewed acquaintance) in addition to a playful wit, an ageless experience of ask yourself, and a masterful skill to meld rational that means and emotion. therefore, out of her personal reports, the recollection of others' tales, and the mind's eye of empathy, Parker has created this "close circle of strangers." those modern lyric poems contain not anything under a compassionate compendium of narrative confessions in verse, giving voice to powerfully resonant and unforgettable expressions of affection, loss and eager for human connection.
