About this title:

Synopsis:

The centerpiece of this collection, "Elegy for My Sister", is a sequence of poems on the suicide of the poet's sister in which he gathers, piece by piece, the scattered fragments of his sister's life. In other poems, Santos follows this elegiac theme into the broader contexts of myth and contemporary history to explore the ways each private loss is overlaid by those harrowing conditions by which our century defines itself.

Product Description: The centrepiece of this collection, Elegy for My Sister, is a sequence of poems on the suicide of the poet's sister. In the other poems, Sherod Santos follows this elegiac theme into the broader contexts of the Holocaust, myth, and contemporary history to explore private loss.
