|Carolyn Zonailo||the moon with mars in her arms|
A compelling new volume from one of Canada’s most esteemed voices in poetry, the moon with mars in her arms is an important work delving deep into the heart of life, death and rebirth. Starting from Jungian archetypes, Zonailo combines the personal and the universal to evoke eternal truths of the human condition in language both sensual and spare.
