By Herself (Penguin Poets) : <div><b>An artful, compelling new collection from &ldquo;a special poet in every sense&rdquo; (<i>Poetry</i>)</b></div> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>The poems in Debora Greger&rsquo;s new book journey from Florida to England to Venice, finding in the byways and accidents of travel the ghostly presences that mark the poet&rsquo;s passage from youth half-forgotten to the edge of old age: the younger self that, like some heroine in Henry James, she catches glimpses of and barely recognizes; the long-dead poets unable to sleep, with things still on their mind.&nbsp;The elegies threaded through this mature, startling book recognize life moving toward the shadows&mdash;these are poems of old responsibilities and new virtues, looking back as a way of looking forward.</div> <br />
