Riassunto: Poetry. "The world is full of things unbecoming themselves," writes Maria M. Benet in Mapmaker of Absences. The poems in this collection chart more than subtractions and absences. They recover scenes of a childhood in Eastern Europe and contemporary life in California; they record the unraveling of preconceptions natural, marital, and familial; they remind us of the intensity of small moments brought into consciousness. "Maria M. Benet is a literary cartographer of memory, of a past dense with meanings that need to be deciphered, of longing, nostalgia, and loss. She has found a way to map the interiors, and she does so with insight, sympathy, and imagination"--Edward Hirsch.
Sinossi: "The world is full of things unbecoming themselves," writes Maria M. Benet in Mapmaker of Absences, her first collection of poetry. This poet though, charts more than subtractions, more than absences. She limns scenes of a childhood in Eastern Europe and contemporary life in California; she records the unraveling of preconceptions natural, marital, and familial; she sings of the intensity of small moments brought into consciousness. Her range is wide, her language keen, her humor subtle. Benet is a skilled cartographer, and this book is a guide to the workings of the human heart.
