Read full description of the books:
Built with deceptively simple free verse lines, using minimal capitalization and punctuation, The Volcano Sequence is, true to its name, a force that builds slowly.
Many voices come together in this sequence in a search for God and the mother, both in the most concrete and the most abstract of forms. Ostriker speaks from the not-disparate personas of daughter, poet, Jew, traveler, scholar; she reaches further to take on the voice of such characters as Jonah and the psalmist, and a few of what she seems to be telling us are the many, even infinite voices of God.
The Volcano Sequence is everything a sequence should be--a unified and varied body of poems, at once a single poem and many poems, all churning and circling around that caldera that is the Great Abstraction, stepping close enough to let you feel its heat.
