Here are poems of love and marriage -- including a psalm for the poets anniversary and a portrayal of her parents dancing during the Depression -- and poems identifying with the hungers, sorrows, and joys of Chaim Soutine, Margaret Fuller, Paul Celan, and Henry James. In the final sonnet sequence, Schulman confronts her mothers death, calling on the art of many cultures to illuminate the universality of grief.
