Product Overview

The End of Dreams is a celebration of the human capacity for adaptation amid the cycles of loss and renewal that characterize our intimate lives. Floyd Skloot mixes dramatic monologue with meditative and narrative verse in poems that explore family experiences, the lives of artists, historical crisis, love, nature, illness, and sudden, unpredictable change. The poet describes moments rich in complexity: when a grandfathers intentional loss at cards is really a victory of love; when Flannery OConnors waxing and waning illness becomes a merciful strengthening of her faith in death and resurrection; when dreams and reality merge for a man in his final seconds of life. Musical, sometimes funny, sometimes deeply poignant, twining nostalgia with a hard-earned acceptance of the present, these accessible, emotional poems probe the power of our transformative imagination. *Author: Skloot, Floyd *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 56 *Publication Date: 2006/02/01 *Language: English *Dimensions: 9.02 x 5.98 x 0.18 inches
