Charles Coe - Memento Mori

Charles Coe is the author of two books of poetry: All Sins Forgiven: Poems for my Parents and Picnic on the Moon, both published by Leapfrog Press. A third volume, Memento Mori, has just been released by the same publisher. Charles is also the author of Spin Cycles, a novella published by Gemma Media. He was a 2017 Artist-in-Residence for the city of Boston and is an adjunct professor of English at Salve Regina University in Newport, Rhode Island, where he teaches in the MFA program.

 

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.
