The book review of Maggie Smith’s new collection Goldenrod talks about finding universal truths in times of distress. Poetry can free the spirit of the weight of the world and “for more than a year now, the distress of social distancing, lockdown, and a rapidly mutating virus has overshadowed our public lives. In her new collection Goldenrod, Pushcart-Prize winning poet MaggieSmith responds to this destabilization by turning inward and asking — is the universal truth what we think it is?”
A wonderful read.
