Growing Old in Poetry
by Sydney Lea and Fleda Brown


Overview -
Normal0falsefalsefalseEN-USJAX-NONE Sydney Lea and Fleda Brown, past poets laureate of their respective states and both nationally recognized writers who've given their lives to their art, have conspired to write an unusual book of essays. They've picked a wide variety of topics and headed out as they wished with each, covering a lot of territory, both artistic and memoiristic. Some of the pieces, like "Wild Animals," are downright silly; some, like "Sex," "Music," and "Food," are provocative; some, like "Clothes," "Sports," and "Houses," appear ordinary but are ultimately revealing. The final essay offers, from each, a personal look at how a poet lives and writes in this troubling time. The excitement of this collection is in the details--how lives are lived and poems written over time, and at last, an entire body of work as witness.
