Crossing Point

Crossing Point

by Myra Schneider

Myra Schneider writes, "The overall theme [of this collection] is women. 'Mother and Daughter', the core sequence... recreates the life of my grandmother and the earlier life of my mother, drawing on information my mother gave me... A shorter sequence looks at the life of my mother-in-law, a refugee, and the circumstances which shaped her life. The title poem follows her escape from Vienna a few months before the war in 1939. There are two poems about famous women of the past. Other poems about women explore anger, inadequacy, mental illness, self-discovery and joy."
