Margo Berdeshevsky

Author Margo Berdeshevskyabout this book: A good lady at a recent reading for "Between Soul and Stone" asked me, "but where =is=that? Meaning where exactly did I have in mind... for such a place that lies between those two points, soul & stone, in my title. The facile answer might be a landscape of passions and emotions hung between heaven and earth. But I intended a little more. And if i could say it all in 160 words, I suppose I would not have a book of poems.

The book is about a reach for the spiritual woman-self, a confrontation with the deity she finds or does not find; it is about aging, it is about wandering and solitude and stones that may whisper, soul that may shout. The poet Jerome Rothenberg has said of these poems that they have "a rare persistence of the lyric voice, used with a sense of ecstasy & grief almost religious in its evocations. Absolutely modern & fearlessly romantic by turns, the poems circle the rich & threatened corners of the living planet & travel further into places marked by mythic & oneiric time." His words are deeply meaningful to me, and I believe that they are true to the book he kindly has written about. It is important to a poet to feel "heard." Important for each writer. My hope for this book is that it allows me to be heard in that darkness and in that light that is "Between Soul and Stone."
