From the Back Cover:

Here in her beautiful and brilliant new collection, Sandra Gilbert collects the poems she wrote in memory of her husband's unexpected and inexplicable death. 'Widow's Walk, ' the book's centerpiece, charts the poet's journey though the stages of grief, from the bleak moments when her lost love seems massive as a ghost volcano, 'dead / and gigantic and frozen in reproach, ' so that there is 'nowhere / you are not, nowhere / you are not, ' to the tenuous instant when she realizes that she must' send you forth....musing and lit with your own past toward the unimaginable ice cliffs, / south of the south.'
