Holding My Selves Together: New & Selected Poems
Author: Margaret Rozga
Publisher: Cornerstone Press (2021)
In Holding My Selves Together: New and Selected Poems, her fifth volume of poetry, outgoing Wisconsin Poet Laureate Margaret Rozga brings together some of her best-loved poems about Milwaukee’s fair housing marches and her concern for issues of peace and social justice, with new poems that identify with Alice in Wonderland and imagine new Alice adventures. New poems also grapple with issues of recent political turmoil and pandemic-induced uncertainty. These deeply written poems find in language the glue that may hold our selves together.
