Coal and Roses
Twenty-one GlosasBook - 2009
"Coal and Roses" allows the poet space to both research and to create, looking simultaneously to the past and to her hopes for an uncertain, metaphysical future.
Included are a series of 21 glosas, borrowing from the work of Ted Hughes, John Ashbery and Thom Gunn, amongst others. A masterful display of linguistic dexterity, Page assimilates the pervasive complexity and the abundance of tradition that co-exist in the world of literature.
