Reviews - What do customers think about But a Passage in Wilderness?

essential poems  May 19, 2008
These are bardic poems, but not at all presumptuous or abstract. Berdeshevsky's earned them by her life fully lived, her compassion, and the music that makes them poetry. They're also personal poems, but not at all narcissistic or obscure. They represent a full, grand consciousness both anchored in our own shared moment and illuminating it. An essential book, the best possible companion in the wreckage of now.
What is hard can also be beautiful  Apr 28, 2008
The best kind of poetry: it challenges the reader to look closely and honestly at this difficult world. Although what the poet witnesses and asks us to witness in But a Passage in Wilderness may be personally and globally painful, for example in her rendering of time spent in tsunami-torn Sumatra, Margo Berdeshevsky handles all with incredible beauty and (dare I say?) grace.
Witnessing  Apr 23, 2008
As I read these gorgeously written poems, I am observing these tough wildernesses or I am in ritual with the text, or I am reformulating what it means to be reader witness, because these poems make me sit up straighter and seek. These wild places I find in her work, they are not uncultivated, uninhabited, and inhospitable regions, but familiar, stark and unapologetically human, and so alive. I love this book.
