Über diesen Titel


Book by Castan, Fran

From the Back Cover:

  • "Fran Castan's poems greet and challenge us with a keen urgency, absolute sincerity, and a simplicity that defines eloquence.  They are the best of company in the best moments of our lives 'as we wait for whatever will take us.'"  -- Philip Appleman
  • "'I hold my mother in the bath / the way she used to hold / a plucked pullet in a tub of hot water...' This is good  writing.  There are many moving poems.  One of the last poems, on the crone and the merkin, is deeply funny and great." -- Robert Bly
  • "...set against the backdrop of sea, sky, cityscape, or man-made disaster, but more family rooms where intimacy occurs...Castan's poems [are] in a voice...delicate with grief and full of sympathetic worthy of the journey they take toward reconciliation and wisdom."  -- Daniela Gioseffi
  • "Fran Castan's poems seem effortlessly constructed, transparent in their extraordinary ability to communicate, and yet they are subtle in their imagery and rhythm.  Individually, the poems are elegant lyrics; together they tell a  moving story of pain, bravery, and ultimate optimism about the inevitable cycle of generations."  -- Florence Howe
  • "...a restrained but impassioned, moving work.  We have never seen the Vietnam tragedy through such eyes, with such grief, rage, clarity.  -- Robin Morgan
  • "...a diction so clean and spare and unadorned that it stands at once as elegy...and as celebration of a language that has an inmate power to free us from the burdens of elegy and lead us into peace and understanding.  Clarity in poetry, when it emerges as it does...from the human drama being rendered here, is genius:  unflinching, restorative, luminous."  -- Bruce Weigl
