Abstract:

This selection of poetry is the author{u2019}s second collection. It diverges from the tone and traditional forms of her first collection with the introduction of several works of light verse, and a lengthy poem about Chopin{u2019}s first year in Paris (Kremlin of Smoke) written mostly in free verse. Yet, the rhyme and cadenced poems, still largely concerned with the summoning of significant past lives and events--historic or personal--dominate the book, giving it Schnackenberg{u2019}s distinctive signature.
