Awakened to Dreams - Hiroshima's Legacy
|Author: ||Stidfole-Sorlie, Sharon|
Poems examine painful memories that are inexplicably related to Hiroshima, creating a world in which the reader feels that humanity is bound to illusions that may be deadly or divine, depending on their source and application.
"Sharon Stidfole-Sorlie's brilliant long narrative begins in the midnight of our century, where a world of technologically disoriented people 'greedily eat/from the candy/house of illusions,' (a structure resembling the gingerbread house of fairy lore). No one sees true except Death, who understands the mushroom cloud is more than a toadstool to ward off invasions. . . . One finishes this admirable book sensing Aurora awakening." - William Harrold
