Beats from Heartland: Autobiographical Reflections (Paperback)Dorothy Robbins (author)
Paperback 120 Pages / Published: 01/11/2003
- Not available
From the studio of a sculptress battling against the restrictions of old age and a debilitating illness comes this beautiful collection of verse - a paean to the power of affection, the senses and the will to continue creating. Some of Dorothy Robbins's poems have the harmonics and grace notes of a prayer. Others are layered with a rich sensuality born of the poets tactile response to flesh and form as a sculptress. Some again are pure revellings in landscape and visual impression. In these verse recollections, creative fire and enthusiasm provide a lifeline, an antidote to the aging process. 'Beats From Heartland' takes the reader through the whole gamut of emotional responses to end, suitably enough, on a firm note of optimism. It is a message for all of us.
