Saying the Necessary


Category: Poetry


Edward Harkness


Copyright/published Year: 2000 by Pleasure Boat


ISBN: 096514139X


Binding: paperback


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.
