Description
Have you ever seen old buildings or ghost towns and wondered who lived there decades ago and if their ghosts still haunt them? Preservation of a Vanishing World answers these questions blending micro-fiction, persona poetry, and the essence of place. Inspired by forgotten spaces and lives, these poems reach out and grasp for those who have been hidden inside memories and seek to find them again. In her powerful debut collection of poetry, Kelle Roberts discovers continuity between place and experience. Influenced by the dark romanticism of the nineteenth century and modernist poets of the twentieth century, Roberts writes a love letter to the past filled with hope and heartache. Her poetry tackles complex themes of family, love, loss, and the ability to preserve parts of ourselves eclipsed in the passing ages.
About the author
Three generations of Kelle Robert's family have called Colorado home. She is a doctoral candidate and a Professor of United States History. If she is not teaching or writing, you will find her in the forest with her dogs, rain, snow, or shine. Inspired by place, persona, and classical narrative poetry, her debut, Preservation of a Vanishing World, seeks to do just that, dig into the past, unearth ghosts from the soil, and to find yourself suspended between memories and the present.
