This Flesh These Words

This powerful book by Montreal poet Sharon H. Nelson reflects on the deeper side of life — friendship, loss, community and language. The poems of This Flesh These Words contemplate humanity’s restless spiritual hunger witnessed in diverse cultural traditions. The poet confronts the grief of loss, but also celebrates life and the ability of language to sustain friendship and community. Sharon H. Nelson takes as the vocation of the poet the study of “what it means to be fully human and how we as humans survive.”
