About this item
Diane Wakoski's Lady of Light offers all new poems--continuing her lifetime tropes, sprawling forms, and general "bad assery." In "Now She Has Disappeared in Water" she mourns the death of her sister, Marilyn, in long series of lament, recall and sometimes hard self-examination. In a bonus book within a book, "Rhodochrosite Light," she writes everyday as she watches Daniel Barenboim play Beethoven on DVDs during Fall 2016. From liking "a man in a suit and tie" to stating "music reveals everything," she is both audience and creator, an interweaving of pure esthetic response, daily life and memory of her earlier years at the piano. Lady of Light is a tour de force.
