Still Life In Milford




The new collection from the author of the cult classic THE UNDERTAKING

IN STILL LIFE IN MILFORD, Lynch casts the cold eye we are told to on life and death, history and memory, the local and the larger geog-raphies. Examining the dynamics of faith, rememberance, and intimate conduct, these poems are informed by end times, tribulations and visions that make up the ordinary enterprise of daily life. Colloquy and narrative, Soliloquy and tribute: STILL LIFE IN MILFORD engages the poet's voice - as elegist, eulogist, orbiturist, straight man and passer-by - to achieve a difficult and inimitable harmony.
