Author of the recent and critically acclaimed memoir ""I Hear Voices"", Jean Feraca is also an award-winning poet. Her second collection of poems, ""Crossing the Great Divide"", has not been widely available until now but forms a fascinating counterpoint to the story of emergence she reveals in her memoir. Brilliant, passionate, sexual, these poems travel into mythic ancestral landscapes in southern Italy and Sicily, on a psychic journey of self-discovery, sometimes luminous, sometimes harrowing, leading ultimately to deliverance, as in the title poem of the collection:""I shall live out my life rejoicing ribboning under the jagged shadow of the hawk. There is no reason for this joy eagle-bald, knifing through me like a canyon. There is nothing in this landscape that defines me.""This work is by [copyright]Jean Feraca.
