Elaine Feinstein – Talking to the Dead 7th May 2007
Elaine Feinstein’s latest collection of poems opens with a death in winter and closes with a grandchild and his spring-like spirit. She writes without sentimentality about the husband she lost in 2002 and about the often uneasy relationship they had. The poems evoke the affection, ambivalence and intimacy that marked the marriage.
Elaine Feinstein talks to Ritula about writing on love, grief and a life lost.

Talking to the Dead by Elaine Feinstein is published by Carcanet, ISBN: 978-185754902-7
