Product description

Review

Anna M. Evans is one of the best practitioners of the sonnet and the sonnet series. Her series on the Titanic is one of the most memorable I have ever read. The technical difficulty of the poem is noteworthy, but it is the construction of the book, based on that poem as a centerpiece, that is genius.
    – Kim Bridgford, author of Undone

An earlier feminist poet went “diving into the wreck” of personal experience and gender politics. Now comes Anna M. Evans, diving into the wreck of the Titanic to illuminate both personal experience and the politics of social class. Working at the height of her remarkable poetic powers, Evans fuses the historical voyage of the doomed luxury liner with the personal (her mother’s fatal illness) and the political (class inequality, resonating with our own disastrous era). The result is one of the best, most unforgettable books I have read in years.
    – Julie Kane, author of Paper Bullets

Despite the great accomplishment of [Evans’s] technical tours de force, it is not admiration for technique that is the main feeling that stays with a reader once the book is finished, rather it is the undeniably powerful emotional force of what is being said.
    – Dick Davis (from the foreword), author of Love in Another Language
