Abstract:

"These spare and unsentimental poems explore the borrowed rooms we inhabit in personal relationships: the temporary homes of marriage and parenting; the personas we carry for a little while and must ultimately abandon. Ultimately, Barbara Pelman's borrowed rooms offer her a new perspective: a window through which she can glimpse islands drifting in a new sea, the rain shining the bones of trees on the beach - a sense, finally, of home."--Jacket.
