EVEN WHEN WE SLEEP: POEMS
ABOUT THE BOOK
Marilyn Kallet's new collection of poetry, "Even When We Sleep", opens with sassy love poetry, then faces the pandemic with a clear eye and a lyrical embrace. Her second chapter takes us round trip to Paris and home again, with a loving eye. The third section includes poems that hold patches of memoir. The final section confronts anti-Semitism at home and abroad, ending with love and hope. Eluard's influence is more present than ever, and William Carlos Williams gets in a line or two, for good luck!
