The Lost Letters
[poems]Book - 2013
Poetry. Atmospherically light and stylistically expansive--poems that regard our givens as a gift. At the centre of THE LOST LETTERS is a sequence of radically diverse poems based on the story of Heloise and Abelard, truly lovers in a dangerous time, the twelfth century. The raw material is heavy, tension between flesh and spirit being the serious issue carried forward from the twelfth century into the twenty-first. But Greenwood's deft and delicate handling of scenarios of love requited but balked becomes a perceptive reading--extraordinarily inventive and constantly surprising--of contemporary secular society.
