Dying with Robert Mitchum, Marylou Streznewski

14.00

This meditation on war attests to the fact that you don’t have to have been to war to be a “war poet”. From memories going back to the earliest days of WWII to witnessing contemporary wars in Middle East, this “anti-war Mama” of a West Point graduate records the impact of violence, injustice, indifference and cruelty, not only on those who suffer directly, but on all who have eyes, hearts and souls. With quiet grace, and tightly-lyrical verse, she stands witness to the complex and disturbing forces that lead mankind again and again into the crucible of armed conflict.

Marylou Kelly Streznewski’s career has included theater, journalism, and the teaching of writing on high school, college and community levels. As a member of the International Women’s Writing Guild, she has served as a workshop director at their annual summer conference. Her non-fiction book, Gifted Grownups: the Mixed Blessing of Extraordinary Potential, a study of one hundred gifted adults, appears in libraries word-wide, as a textbook in graduate courses, and has been translated into Chinese and published in Taiwan. Short fiction and poetry have been published nationally, and two chapbooks, Rag Time and Woman Words are housed in the chapbook collection of Poet’s House in New York.
