Elegy

type
  • Movie
genre

Spare lines aout the changing weather over a year, a metaphor for the bloom and wilt of life.

Sample Verse
”How sad is absence. How very gone / The nothing after.”

Bottom Line
Had the jacket not said Elegy chronicles the year following the death of her son, Mary Jo Bang’s book would still move you for its grace, not its real-life poignancy.
