A Route Obscure and Lonely by LindaAnn LoSchiavo

a route obscure and lonely

A dynamic collection…
In her latest collection of 33 poems, the title of which she has borrowed from a line from Edgar Allan Poe’s Dream-land, LoSchiavo proves she is clearly at the top of her form as she blends fantastic with mundane, breaking lines between the fairy-tale and the factual. In “Embodiment,” a sibling yearns to breathe life in the ghost of her sister. “Why the Dead Visit” conveys an intense and morbid fascination for death. While elements of many poems firmly date them in the mythic past (“Aeole and Odysseus on the Line,” “Poe and His Women” and “Uriel” among others), the transgressive angels, hungry vampires, and defiant witches have been replaced by their more modern counterparts in others (“Presentism Core” and “Unquiet House”). The collection showcases LoSchiavo’s versatility as a poet as her supernatural entities go from anguished to bizarre to subdued in an instant. A fresh spin on Edgar Allan Poe’s work.
Note: This title is free on Kindle Unlimited.
