Yes, There Will Be Singing Paperback / softback
Part of the Poets on Poetry series
Yes, There Will Be Singing brings together Marilyn Krysl's essays on the origins of language and poetry, poetic form, the poetry of witness, and poetry's collaboration with the healing arts.
Beginning with pieces on her own origins as a poet, she branches into poetry's profound spiritual and political possibilities, drawing on rich examples from poets such as Anna Akhmatova, W.S.
Merwin, and Venus Khoury-Ghata. Krysl concludes with a selection of stories of her nursing and humanitarian work, powerfully connecting poetic expression with a generous and compassionate worldview.
