Reviews - What do customers think about Measures (Salmon Poetry.)?

Measures  Aug 6, 2008
Nadya Aisenberg was writing on the social implications of forgiveness in literature at the time of her sudden death in April 1999. This subject had occupied her for over a decade. Through narrative and poetry, feminism and pacifism, Aisenberg believed that forgiveness was the key to understanding that often elusive mystery that is ourselves. Possessing a double talent, for creative and theoretical writing, Nadya published poetry and criticism in nearly equal parts. 'Before We Were Strangers', 'Leaving Eden', and this final collection, Measures, collect poems that describe a search for a kind of peace in exotic settings all over the world and at home, in the solitary and communal, combining the languages of natural and social science, philosophy and art. A committed feminist, she published two books on the subject of feminism, 'Women of Academe: Outsiders in the Sacred Grove' (co-authored with Mona Harrington) and 'Ordinary Heroines: Transforming the Male Myth'. She also published 'A Common Spring: Crime Novel and Classic' and 'We Animals: Poems of Our World' (Sierra Club Books). Her book of poetry, 'Leaving Eden', won the Bruce P. Rossley Award in 1995.
