Poets and Poems: Jeanine Hathaway and "Long After Lauds"

Poetry speaks to us differently than both non-fiction and fiction prose. It’s older, of course, than the printed word, recited and repeated long before language was codified into letters, spellings, and definitions. Even in its written or printed form, poetry stands apart, like the older, sole child of a previous marriage. And it’s the literary form that most readily changes when it’s read silently and read aloud. 

These differences between poetry and prose came quickly to mind when I read Long After Lauds: Poems by Jeanine Hathaway, published in 2020. And I will be an honest consumer. It wasn’t the poet’s reputation or reading one of her poems in a journal or online, or the title that attracted me to the collection.
