We Speak in Tongues
|Author: ||Schmidt, Jan|
This collection of poetry is a collage of women’s voices, a poetic vision explored within different combinations of landscapes, voices, and art.
". . . every word is intended to convey a mammoth burden of meaning, of innuendo, of the intendedly unsaid. . . . Much that is here has a profoundly affecting yearning, and I find that pieces of these poems lodge in the psyche and continue to affect the reader long after the book has been put by. This woman continues to teach us about the way women perceive men, even when we are alone, and even when in the midst of companionship our attentions strays and we recall her words, her articulate observations, and her wisdom."
