9780807130834: Late Wife: Poems (Southern Messenger Poets Series)

In Late Wife, a woman explores her disappearance from one life and reappearance in another as she addresses her former husband, herself, and her new husband in a series of epistolary poems. Though not satisfied in her first marriage, she laments vanishing from the life she and her husband shared for years. She then describes the unexpected joys of solitude during her recovery and emotional convalescence. Finally, in a sequence of sonnets, she speaks to her new husband, whose first wife died from lung cancer. The poems highlight how the speaker's rebeginning in this relationship has come about in part because of two couples' respective losses.

About the Author:

Review:

"Late Wife tells the story of love lost and redeemed. In Emerson's hands, heartbreak and healing turn as tangible as the material world she observes with such love and such precision."
