by Sandra M. Gilbert
"Widow's Walk," the book's centerpiece, charts the poet's journey through the stages of grief, from bleak moments of desolation to tenuous instants of acceptance.
Gilbert seeks both to elegize her husband and to understand his death in public, political, and philosophical contexts. Ghost Volcano is a tender, courageous, loving, and ultimately universal account of how we endure grief.
