      I begin with a quote from W.R. Johnson on Propertius ‘When we have finally gotten to Cornelia, whose central message is that the game of recusatio has ended, overwhelmed by her chilly sublimities and conquered by the powers of her Roman Truths and Virtues – when the performance ends and the silence begins, we may be shocked to hear Cynthia laughing loudly at the lachrymose deity Cited by: 4. The book is an examination of the importance of silence, its cultural history, and the aversion contemporary society has to it. Although she is now a nonfiction writer, she also has a large bibliography of novels and short stories.

    The Catacombs are excavated in the volcanic rock which abounds in the neighborhood of Rome. It is a granulated, grayish breccia, or tufa, as it is called, of a coarse, loose texture, easily cut with a knife, and bearing still the marks of the mattocks with which it was the firmer volcanic rock of Naples the excavations are larger and loftier than those of Rome; but the latter, although. The poem takes place around the time of sunset in a country churchyard—also known as a cemetery. Kinda spooky, right? And the darkness of the setting is appropriate for the subject matter, too.

    We read a book so good we have to tell somebody. We phone another poet and read poems aloud until both of us are moved to silence. Then the work begins to spread in the old way, an excitement, a brush fire. This is what I hope will happen to Chad Sweeney’s Little Million Doors: An Elegy (Nightboat Books).   Melanie Hoffert is the author of Prairie Silence: A heartfelt coming-out story as well as an eloquent elegy to a rural way of life that is rapidly vanishing from the American landscape.” Prairie Silence is a book you’ll be eager to read. 5/5(3).
