Carnival of Longing

The silence of a lover's absence is delicately shaped and suffused with the breath of new and poignant life in these poems and prose poems by Kristjana Gunnars.


Description

 The silence of a lover's absence is delicately shaped and suffused with the breath of new and poignant life in these poems and prose poems by Kristjana Gunnars. She laments the inadequacy of words to interpret passion and longing, yet, with an exquisite sense of paradox, does so in language remarkable for its poise and elegance. With porcelain care Gunnars creates translucent, fragile images which are, at the same time, tensile and enduring.
