Poetry. The always elegant, often heart-wrenching poems in Rachel Hadas's eleventh collection are no-holds-barred dispatches from the front lines of a loved one's surrender to dementia. "Stunning"—Molly Peacock. "Harrowing"—A.E. Stallings.
Rachel Hadas's numerous books include a memoir, Strange Relation, (2011) and eleven books of poetry, most recently The Golden Road (2012). A new book of poems, Questions in the Vestibule, is forthcoming in 2016. She has also translated tragedies by Euripides and Seneca, coedited an anthology of Greek poetry in translation from Homer to the present, and edited an anthology of work by poets in a workshop she initiated at Gay Men's Health Crisis. A frequent reviewer and columnist for the Times Literary Supplement, Hadas lives in New York City with her husband and collaborator, artist Shalom Gorewitz. She is Board of Governors Professor of English at Rutgers University-Newark.Author City: NEW YORK, NY USA
