Item description for Through a Gate of Trees: Poems (New Voices) by Molly Peacock Susan Jackson...

The all encompassing theme in this debut collection is how a person holds the tension of opposites-- darkness to light, from loss to reconciliation and redemption. In the middle of life with both feet on the ground, the poet wrestles with the realization that the ground is never stable and that life changes in a split second. The reader is led through two worlds, the geographic one--from Egypt to Malaysia from India to Cape Cod, and the inner one--entered by celebratory, riveting and dangerous poems as they move through sex, love, birth, and death.

Reviews - What do customers think about Through a Gate of Trees: Poems (New Voices)?

An outstanding debut collection  Feb 28, 2008
In her first full-length collection, Jackson displays a range of poetic accomplishments. one of which is delicate yet powerful imagery. For example, in "The Twittering Machine" she remembers spring in Paris. She recalls the "red dress, a bag of apples, hope. / Two rooms and a bath, flowers in the garden." In the next stanza she paints in more of the scene, appealing to eyes, ears, and nose: "Birds twitter toward a sweet smell from the brambles. / The mountains blue again, leafless trees rising / like a formation of soldiers coming over the ridge." While such images energize individual poems, Jackson also uses imagery to provide complexity and structural unity to the collection. Contrasting images of light and dark are woven throughout the poems. In "Mother of Memory Come Up from the Well" the speaker confronts her mother's descent into the darkness of old age: "Night turns / into itself over / and over, / stars gleam, / then extinguish / in the light shafts / of daybreak." In a later poem, "The Hawks Come Back," the speaker asks, "What shall I do to accustom my eyes / to the new light? / We feel our way up through darkness. . ." This is a strong collection, highly recommended.
The debut collection of poetry by Susan Jackson  Sep 2, 2007
The debut collection of poetry by Susan Jackson, "Through A Gate Of Trees" is an impressive collection of poetry distinguished by an unusually keen perceptiveness, vivid word imagery, and engaging wit. Here are poems of a living intensity that will engage poetry enthusiasts of all preferences and literary backgrounds from beginning to end. 'Noctiluca for Peter': You come back with the children/for the first time since she died./New creases around your eyes,/you remember everything,/remember Contadora,/how she knelt on deck/cleaning the amberjack we caught/trawling, scales shimmering in the sun/as she flung them onto the wood;/the day we anchored off Saboga,/swimming in the shoals you found/a field of red starfish, almost too late/we saw the sharks, their triangle fins/black, circling in on us.
An invitation  Jun 9, 2007
A book to read over and over. Alone and silent, aloud and intimate. It will fill your heart and touch your soul. It provides a place to rest and mourn, to refresh and join the quest. To be challenged to experience your world from a new perspective whether you are sad,lonely, filled with celebration or just curious. I know you will welcome the journey
Lasting, lovely images  May 3, 2007
Gentle, yet strong...
Mysterious, yet so clear...
held deep in the heart.
