rob mclennan’s blog feature on Sandy Pool’s Undark

rob mclennan calls Sandy Pool’s new book of poetry, “a striking performance of grief and compassion, sung as an acknowledgment of those who suffered at the hands of progress.”

To check out this feature review of Sandy Pool’s latest work, Undark: An Oratorio visit rob mclennan’s blog.

Sandy Pool’s second book, Undark: An Oratorio, is equal parts dramatic elegy and poetic inquisition written in seven distinct voices. Drawing from the historical record of the ‘radium women’ and other instances of historical erasure, the work urges us to engage deeply with questions of time and women’s history. The book confronts Bakhtin’s notorious questions: What happens to time when history is being erased? What happens when time takes on flesh?
