A Close Circle of Strangers: Poems for a Lonely Planet - download pdf or read online

By Jennifer Parker,G.L. Morrison

a detailed CIRCLE OF STRANGERS is a heartwarming and thought-provoking choice of unique "Poems for a Lonely Planet" from Jennifer Merri Parker, an award profitable, Mississippi-raised, globe-trotting author. Parker, who has famous in lately penned prose that her American wanderings and expatriate lifestyles out of the country have culminated in a compulsion to pen a press release of world citizenship, a kind of "letter to the world," has ultimately, fortunately, placed that missive in concrete shape. during this lyrical anthology, she speaks via a various choice of characters, delivering numerous takes on human interactions. those works discover the vagaries of relationships and rifts, connection, disconnection and neglected connection--all via phrases crafted with based tenderness, humor and perception. Parker, a Harvard graduate, former journalist, librarian and globe-trotting teacher/scholar, combines her personal stressed center (with its consistent quest for novel and renewed acquaintance) in addition to a playful wit, an ageless feel of ask yourself, and a masterful skill to meld rational that means and emotion. therefore, out of her personal studies, the recollection of others' tales, and the mind's eye of empathy, Parker has created this "close circle of strangers." those modern lyric poems contain not anything under a compassionate compendium of narrative confessions in verse, giving voice to powerfully resonant and unforgettable expressions of affection, loss and eager for human connection.
