Survivors in the Garden, Marie Kane

10.00

Survivors in the Garden is just that—a collection of poems about survival: of the garden and the gardener. In “Morning Wish” Kane says of her first lover she forgave him “as the incision forgives the knife,” an image cuttingly double-edged given her and her family’s struggles and the equally difficult nature of redemption. Of her, survival demands courage and grace. Poem after poem demonstrates both, which, aside from its sheer beauty and formal dexterity, is what this reader values most about Marie Kane's work: courage and grace, her necessary armor in a fallen world, and she reminds us, ours.  ~ George Drew, author of The View from Jackass Hill
