The Darkened Temple, Paperback / softback Book

The Darkened Temple Paperback / softback

Part of the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Poetry series


"Longing itself is nothing but the heart's open spaces," writes Mari L'Esperance. And in the open spaces at the heart of these poems is a mother who has disappeared.

In a world of war and displacement, illness of the mind and body, imprisonment and violence both historical and personal, the poet leads her readers through a landscape of loss.

In unadorned language, she draws readers into the interplay between articulation and silence-and finally offers a vision of redemption.
