She Walks in Beauty: A Woman’s Journey Through Poems

She Walks in Beauty:  A Woman’s Journey Through Poems is a perceptively chosen anthology selected and introduced by Caroline Kennedy.  Kennedy has grouped the poems according to life-stages:  falling in love, making love, breaking up, marriage, work, beauty, clothes and things of this world, silence and solitude, growing up and growing old, death and grief, friendship, how to live. While many of the poems will be very familiar to poetry readers, their thematic groupings create a special symmetry.   In conversing with friends, I am discovering that Kennedy’s choices are really resonating with them.  “Marriage” spoke to me said one, as that’s where I am now”, another said “Growing old” works.  Try this one out.  I think you will find it a pleasant, reflective experience.  [TCPL Call # 808.81 S539 2011].
