About this title

Synopsis:

Ellen Murphy was born in 1916 into a literary family who lived on a farm several miles north of Grand Forks, North Dakota. She went to a one-room country school and to a boarding school for her early education. Ellen wrote poetry from a very early age, and her gift of poetry grew with her life experiences. She entered the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, St. Paul Province, in 1935. She received an undergraduate degree from the College of St. Catherine and, later, a graduate degree from the University of Notre Dame. Sister Ellen taught in the Twin Cities and, in the final years of her career, served as professor of education at the College of St. Catherine, St. Paul, Minnesota. Sister Ellen died in 2004 in St. Paul. Sister Ellen s poetry reveals a profound sense of what it means to belong, to be loved, to have a permanent place in the universe. Her deep spirituality allowed a distillation of her thoughts into poetry, while her North Dakota heritage influenced her praise of the natural world.

Review:

Sister Ellen is a very gifted writer. I find in her verse a fascinating blend of a vivid imagination along with a metaphysical bent (especially in the poem Is which is one of my favorites.) Her reverence for nature and her sense of awe are deep; her metaphors are forceful and most appropriate. --Bishop Robert Morneau, poet, writer, editor, Auxiliary Bishop, Green Bay, Wisconsin Diocese
