This Was A Small Death

Janet DubĂ©  All books by Janet DubĂ©

£3.95     Out of print

This was a small death,
a catch in life
between two kinds of peace

This moving sequence of poems wrestles with the death of the poet's baby son through sudden infant death syndrome. By focusing on this 'small death', the poet amplifies her vision to encompass the enormity of death itself. The language of the poems - sparse, unsentimental - stares bereavement squarely in the face, while a foreword and postscript place Jacob's death in the context of Janet Dubé's own life and experience. Together they make a brave and honest book.

'The writing seems stripped bare of literary devices.The impression left is of powerful emotion shaped and served by a strong intellect. The result is poetry of a particularly rare kind.' - Norman Schwenk
