About this title


What is it like to lose a sibling in childhood, a much loved little brother with whom you shared nearly everything? In precisely detailed and richly imagined poems, with tenderness and healing clarity, the poet Mark D. Bennion tells us. These poems, part elegy, part celebration, part reckoning of loss and love, contain the ageless gifts of knowledge and compassion.
~ Greg Pape, author of American Flamingo and FourSwans
In his new collection Forsythia Mark D. Bennion takes unexpected risks in recapturing a time of childhood that is both fraught with questions of grief as well as light-filled memories of a time when his brother Brian was alive. There is a tentativeness here that intensifies the sense of emotional honesty and vulnerability in these strong, searching poems. The poet speaks from several vantage points: as a younger brother unable to understand the shock of sudden tragedy, as an observer of his parents struck with the horror of the news they have received, as an adult keenly aware of the way time divides into before and after the death of Brian. In Forsythia he has created a riveting collection of poems about loss and survival.
~ Linda Zisquit, author of Havoc: New & Selected Poems

About the Author:

Since 2000, Mark D. Bennion and his wife, Kristine, have raised their family in the Upper Snake River Valley. During this time, he has served as a faculty member in the English Department at Ricks College/Brigham Young University–Idaho, teaching creative writing, drama as literature, and composition courses. Prior to his teaching experience, he did graduate work at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and graduated with an MFA in poetry from the University of Montana. His poems have appeared in a number of literary journals, including Aethlon, caesura, The Comstock Review, Contemporary American Voices, Irreantum, and RHINO. In 2009, Parables Publishing brought out Mark’s first collection of poems, Psalm & Selah: a poetic journey through the Book of Mormon.
