Description


In An Unkindness of Ravens, Meg Kearney's poems weave voices of estrangement and redemption: mothers, daughters, lovers of gin, and dead things.

>

In an attempt to create an identity--to imagine a past when all biological and genealogical ties have been severed--Kearney's poems create their own mythology in order to tell an emotional truth. A number of poems find the protagonist speaking to the character, Raven, who serves as an imaginary lover, friend, and foe: the vehicle through which the reader identifies with the speaker's joy and angst.
