New Poetry Collection From Irene Koronas


This is a new Ibbetson Press release from "Wilderness House Literary Review" poetry editor Irene Koronas :

self portrait
drawn from many
65 poems for 65 years

by
Irene Koronas



Irene receives the smallest whispers - a scrap of paper,
a single word, a passing impression and shows
us reflections of the infinite, the holy, the human.
Her writing evokes ancient dream-time meditations
only to return to the mundane details (polish
my toe nails) that bring us back to the particular,
the present. Her poems are peopled by all sorts
of characters; scholars, theologians, children, philosophers,
musicians, painters, gamblers, activists,
artists, monks, saints, lovers, fathers, mothers, and
on. Irene invites us, with this collection of poems,
to think about who we are in relation to others - to
see ourselves in many different shoes.
Ultimately it is an act of great empathy and great
imagination. These poems are never didactic, often
prophetic, always provocative.

  1. Irene is a truly wonderful asset to the poetry world of anywhere and everywhere. Her heart and experimental workings of langauge resound like a strange church bell. I am very much looking forward to reading her latest work.
