About the Author
Praise For Saved by a Poem: The Transformative Power of Words [With CD (Audio)]…
“This book puts forward poetry as literary ecology, concerned with the protection and preservation of our souls. It is a call, a guide, an invitation to know poetry, to find poetry, to remember poetry. It suggests that turning to poetry can become a necessary practice, like turning off a water faucet or not using a plastic bag. . . . For those who are afraid of poetry, this is a door opening; for those who love poetry, this is a sure deepening.”
— Eve Ensler, author of The Vagina Monologues and Insecure at Last
“Kim Rosen’s work is a unique and important means to help us embody the word in a time when reality is becoming more and more virtual.”
— Roger Housden, author of Ten Poems to Change Your Life
