And Other Poems
by Jane Wohl
70 pages, paperback, $12.00
Wohl’s latest book of poetry is a bold use of form and a bold choice of subject matter. This collection of well-crafted sonnets is driven by rhythm and graced by rhyme, linked together into one long chain of narrative concerning the deep betrayal by a husband of many years. The sonnets progress through images of shock and devastation, responding to the cruel treatment by an unfaithful and inconsiderate husband, and emerge into a sense of contentment in the new state of single life. The poet connects an individual experience with women’s experience in our culture. This book is not light reading and is all the more powerful for that.
