The Patience of Ice
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungFilled with awe at the improbable, incomprehensible trajectory of human experience, the poems in Renate Wood's The Patience of Ice ponder history, memory, and family. Beginning with the sequence of poems titled "German Chronicle", Wood evokes her childhood in Germany during the Second World War, recording the war's impact on the world in general and on her family in particular. Moving between the past and the present, from family life to mythology, her poems are distinguished by intellectual and emotional courage, metaphoric surprise, and linguistic clarity. The Patience of Ice is an accomplished collection from a mature and original poet.
