Thunderbird
Jane Miller

Written as an elegy for her parents, Jane Miller's Thunderbird investigates cultural memory while invoking the ancient and the ultramodern. This book-length sequence of short poems scrolls without interruption, exposing death's facility in transforming family and home. On a larger scale, the poems explore how the body and mind can redeem loss, even when challenged by the terrors of the Holocaust and modern militarism.  

Moving variously through such places as an emergency room, an ancient olive grove, the streets of Berlin, a movie set, the "night-petaled black heaven," and thus ultimately the world of spirit, Miller plies the many incarnations of the thunderbird to examine mortality, madness, and love.
