Poetic Voices: Relationships – Dinah Dietrich and Diane Lockward

We live in a world where relationships, so difficult to establish and understand, can often break. Relationships can fracture, but remain in place, such as with parents and even spouses, or they can disintegrate into separation – friends, lovers, colleagues, co-workers. Pressures and expectations can undermine even the best of relationships.

Two poets have published recent collections that explore these ideas about relationships. They approach their subjects from different perspectives, but both understand the real place and sense of shared responsibility of the individuals involved.

Dinah Dietrich’s Paper Cranes is a small collection of some 21 poems.
