Rose Solari’s second full-length collection of poems is made up of two compellingly different yet intertwining strands. In one, Solari explores a variety of myths, climbing beneath the skin of classical heroes and villains to offer contemporary perspectives on these characters and their tales. The other strand consists of poems of celebration and farewell, written for the author’s late parents, as well as in honor of relationships, illusions, and old selves that have passed on. Woven together, the two strands illuminate each other, dissolving boundaries between the past and the present, the extraordinary and the ordinary, the mythical and the everyday.

Praise for Orpheus in the Park:
The Orphic, mythic poems here may wear masks, but they reveal the voices of self-knowledge and self-revelation. Rose Solari is a poet of accomplished emotion, in poems thoroughly felt and wholly thought-through, whether she is speaking in the tongues of gods or for those she loves. In whatever terms, nothing can disguise the tenderness at the heart of her story.
— Stanley Plumly
I admire Rose Solari’s poems for their steadiness in the presence of emotional challenge. She writes about the real things that happen to us, transforming them, by means of secure craft and loving attention to detail, into works of art that happen to us in more durable ways.
— Henry Taylor
Rose Solari's brilliant and moving poems spring from a highly original fusion of technique, wit, spirituality, and rare passion. They show a poet working at the height of her powers.
— Andrew Harvey
These poems won me over completely, because they don't use classical mythology as a source of erudite, elitist and off-putting allusion, but instead Solari digs deep, really deep, into the myths themselves to find in them the models, reflections, and illuminations for our own lives.
— David Budbill
Solari’s passion for the myths and their depths resonating through our bodies and our bones really comes through.
— Marion Woodman
