Saying the Necessary
Author: Edward Harkness
Copyright/published Year: 2000 by Pleasure Boat
The poems in Saying the Necessary focus on life's essentials: childhood, the rhythms of family, love for those who are dearest. These themes stand in opposition--often within the same poem--to the darker edges of growing up, the quirks and burdens of history, and the violence of our times, whose horrors are nearer than we want to believe. Other recurring motifs include the ephemeral nature of time and memory, and the inevitability of loss. Poetry, for Edward Harkness, acts as a counter force against these natural tendencies, against oblivion.
This is a used book.
Very good condition.
2000 trade paperback. Very lightly read, some bumping to bottom corners, gift inscription on title page, text is clean and unmarked.
