Description

In these poems of the moral imagination, Lee Sharkey explores the disfigured psychic landscape of cruelty, violence, and war. Her lyric poems chart a geography that draws its imagery from Israel/Palestine, Somalia, the Balkans, Iraq, and small town USA, as well as from the intimate domains of sickness and birth. Sharkey responds to our endangered post-9/11 world with courage and clear-eyed tenderness. In a political environment that threatens sanity, she has composed a music of daring empathy.
