Memento Mori: Poems (Paperback)

A Staff Favorite!

I’m not the biggest poetry reader, actually, not at all. But, on a whim, I picked up this collection and really enjoyed it. These poems are intimate and honest with a pleasing rhythm. And, some are definitely laugh out loud funny and relatable. Most of all, you get a definite sense of place to those familiar with Cambridge and Boston

Description


Memento Mori is a meditation on mortality, change and loss. Rather than being simply somber, this volume observes our human condition through a poetic kaleidoscope, with glimpses of irony and humor that offer a refreshing contrast to the more difficult moments. Coe is a storyteller who writes with compassion, insight and a razor-sharp eye for detail.
