the year the pears bloomed twice

Elizabeth Raby

Lust, greed, avarice, gluttony….all are present in the poems of The Year the Pears Bloomed Twice. From the small ache at her center, the poet celebrates and quarrels with the beauty and grief of this world, her hungers of spirit and flesh. The language of her full humanity–her embarrassing longings and unreasonable passions–both seduces and challenges the reader.
