A Deed to the Light

Through poetry, an attempt to make sense of human grief, sorrow, and love

In A Deed To the Light Jeanne Murray Walker asks probing questions about the depth of grief, about letting go, and about the possibility of faith. Her poems have been described by John Taylor, writing in Poetry, as "splendid, subtly erudite, uplifting, and funny."

"Hers is a poetry of lyricism, intelligence, clarity, and wit."--Daniel Hoffman, Chancellor Emeritus of The Academy of American Poets
