Summary: Christina Lovin is a singer of stories and "of the many ways of leaving, part by part, or head first like the hound too far afield to hear the call and downing dusk." An elegiac poet for whom the past opens a door to the present and the future, she seeks to preserve the memory of those she loves even as she reinvents herself. "Sometimes it's wise to do a thing twice," Lovin says. Echo has found her voice: incisive, compassionate, sorrowful, mysterious, full of anger and tenderness for our flawed world. -Jeff Friedman, author of Pretenders. Codice inventario libreria
Riassunto: Going beyond Carl Sandburg's concept of poetry as "an echo, asking a shadow to dance," this collection, its rhythm encompassing the echo, brings back and sheds new light on the childhood, coming of age, and tough issues of the baby boomer generation. Lovin does the hard work, looking "back at things/to come from a time/not yet arrived" resulting in her flawless dance as the reader's reward.
--Hilda Downer, author of Sky Under the Roof: Poems
Christina Lovin's outstanding new collection Echo is wrapped in images of a time when "A Toni and a tube of Fire and Ice, / some typing lessons, and a course in shorthand / could take a girl a long way if she was wise--." Lovin reveals to her readers that growing up in small town America is more than eating ribbon candy, TV westerns, or lounging on the porch glider. Echo is an impressive work. --Leah Maines, Author of Beyond the River
From the Inside Flap: Fine poems by a seasoned poet of time and place, women and coming-of-age in the Midwest.
