Description
Continuum is a sweeping collection from a "miraculous" (Dana Gioia) poet. Spanning nearly sixty years, these poems--both new English translations of her work in Romanian--blend her gallows humor and an engagement with the human experience, from memories of a childhood at play to the contemplation of a gradual mortality.
